A rock confuses the rescue of the child Ryan… and the excavation process is in its last stage

In the latest developments, Moroccan media reported, on Saturday morning, that rescue workers are continuing the horizontal excavation process towards the site where 5-year-old Rayan was stuck.

An official in the rescue team told reporters that the horizontal excavation process is being carried out with great caution, in order to avoid any collapse, especially that the soil is very fragile, explaining that removing a stuck rock from the excavation site, on Saturday morning, required about three hours.

When asked about the health condition of the child Ryan, who is being monitored via a camera, the official said that the possibility of him being alive still exists without revealing more details.

It is estimated that the remaining horizontal excavation work is no more than two meters, which is said to require about two or three hours for completion, according to Moroccan media.

At the beginning of the crisis, attempts to save the child Ryan began through the disembarkation of people practicing what is known as Istighwar, but the narrow diameter of the well prevented them from reaching the stranded child.

The child Ryan fell to a depth of more than 30 meters, while the volunteers could not descend more than 20 meters, and because of this stumbling, rescue efforts focused on an alternative plan.

According to the approved plan, the rescue teams built a large hole parallel to the place where the child Ryan fell, and upon reaching the depth in which it is located, a horizontal excavation was started.

But the fear of landslides prompted the rescue teams to use wide supports, tubes and cylinders to protect those working in the rescue, in addition to taking out the child Ryan, without endangering him.

The operation to rescue the child Ryan is taking place, amid follow-up in Morocco and abroad, while large crowds gathered around the scene, amid calls for people to stand up to let the workers focus on their plan.

A helicopter is stationed at the scene of the accident, which is equipped with the necessary resuscitation equipment, in order to transport the child Ryan to the hospital as soon as aid workers manage to get him out.
