The girl’s mother was in the kitchen when the disastrous moment happened. She didn’t see it unfold, reports local media.

The Military Police and the Fire Department described the rescue as “complex” as they had to dig a huge hole to reach the child, whose name was not revealed.

Then they dug an underground tunnel to reach and save the victim.

After four long hours of the rescue mission, the girl was raised to the surface in a digger bucket while relieved onlookers clapped and cheered.
