A young boy has been found alive after he was trapped in a well for four days.
11-year-old Rahul Sahu was trapped in an 80ft well in India.
The young boy fell down the well when he was playing in his back garden.
The rescue operation faced many delays due to bad weather.
Rescuers also faced trouble when poisonous snakes and scorpions emerged during the digging.
They tried to dig a tunnel next to the well so they could pull young Rahul Sahu out.
