SANDF called in to help rescue boy in mine shaft

JOHANNESBURG, March 2 (ANA) – Ekurhuleni Emergency services have called on South African National Defence Force (SANDF) to assist in rescuing the five-year old boy who fell into a disused mine shaft in Boksburg on Saturday.

Attempts to rescue the boy resumed yesterday but were suspended yet again, due to rock falls inside the shaft.

Ekurhuleni Emergency services spokesperson, William Ntladi, on Thursday said that following the suspension of the operation they had called on the SANDF to assist with alternative strategies.

“We had to escalate the matter to a political level, thus our call to the SANDF to come and assist with strategies to find the boy,” said Ntladi.
