On Thursday morning, some locals, who happened to pass by the well, heard the cries of the boy and alerted the fire service personnel. 
A team rushed to the spot and pulled him out of the well using ropes. Pradeep later told his family that he ran to catch a pigeon on Tuesday morning and accidentally fell into the well. Though he shouted for help during the last three days, no one heard him. 
Only on Thursday, some persons heard his cries and came to his rescue, he said. However, locals were surprised as to how the boy managed to survive all these days in the abandoned well without food or water. 
“Moreover, the well was 150-ft deep and air circulation would also be not that good in such a depth, it is really God’s grace that kept the boy alive all these days,” said one of the villagers.
