Moroccon Boy Rayan Death – He Passed Away After Rescue

A five-year-old Moroccan boy who was trapped in a well for four days has died, despite painstaking efforts to rescue him.

Rayan Oram was rescued from the well on Saturday but did not survive. The boy had taken food and water that was dropped down to him by rope. Authorities used machines in the difficult operation because the diameter of the well was only about a foot and a half wide.

Chefchaouen (Morocco), February 6: According to a media story, Rayan Oram, a five-year-old Moroccon boy who had been trapped in a well since Tuesday, died. Rayan was rescued from the well on Saturday but did not survive, according to CNN. Ryan’s family was paid condolences by Moroccan King Mohammed VI. Following the tragic death of Rayan Oram, King Mohammed VI made a phone call to Khaled Oram and Wassima Khersheesh, the parents of the deceased who died after falling into a well.Rayan fell into the well and was discovered after he was heard crying.

Authorities used machines in the difficult operation because the well’s diameter was only about a foot and a half wide.The boy had taken food and water that was dropped down to him by rope.

Thousands of people had gathered and even camped in solidarity around the site in recent days, where AFP reporters have said the tension has been palpable.

“We are showing solidarity with this child, who is dear to Morocco and the whole world,” said onlooker Hafid El-Azzouz, who lives in the region.

The shaft, just 45 centimetres (18 inches) across, was too narrow to reach Rayan, and widening it was deemed too risky — so earth-movers dug a wide slope into the hill to reach him from the side.

The operation made the landscape resemble a construction site.

Red-helmeted civil defence personnel had at times been suspended by rope, as if on a cliff face.

Overnight they worked non-stop under powerful floodlights that gave a gloomy air to the scene.

“I keep up hope that my child will get out of the well alive,” Rayan’s father had told public television 2M on Friday evening. “I thank everyone involved and those supporting us in Morocco and elsewhere.”
