Vietnamese rescue personnel continue their efforts to rescue a 10-year-old boy from a concrete pipe 35 meters deep.

The plan is to try to pull the concrete pipe completely out of the mud at the construction site in Dong Thap Province.

To succeed in this, drilling is done around the pipe to reduce pressure. At the same time, a 19-meter metal pipe was lowered around the concrete pipe to be able to remove mud and water.

If you can lift the pipe, the plan is to cut the boy off.

The ten-year-old boy, Tae Lee Hau Nam, fell into a narrow 25-centimetre tube three days ago when he was probably searching for metal. At the site, work is underway to build a bridge over the nearby river.

It is unclear if the boy is alive.

He heard his voice calling for help three days ago, but has since stopped communicating with those on the ground. At the same time, oxygen was constantly pumped into the hole.

About 100 soldiers with special equipment were deployed in the rescue operation. The two-day rescue work has so far proven fruitless.
