Algeria-M’sila: Ayache Mahdjoubi, aged 26, lost life in well following failed six-day rescue effort


A man from the province of M’sila lost his life after authorities spent nearly a week trying to rescue him from a 30-metre-deep well he had fallen into, civil defence officials said.

Ayache Mahdjoubi from the city of El Houamed in M’sila province – located about 250km south of the capital, Algiers – was pronounced dead on Sunday, following failed six-day rescue effort, putting an end to this ordeal that has shaken all Algerians for a week long.

In this aspect, the way the deseased, aged 26-years-old, ended up in the well remains unclear.

َAccording to officials, the efforts exerted, in the rural district, so as to rescue Mahdjoubi, which involved digging around the narrow 36-centimetre-wide pipeline, were unsuccessful because of the complications caused by the overflow of groundwater around the structure.
