A 55-year old labourer who was trapped inside a concrete pipeline was finally rescued after seven hours rpt hours of operation jointly conducted by the Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force (ODRAF) and the Fire Brigade personnel today.

Pranakrushna Muduli was trapped inside the pipeline while cleaning the pipeline of a pump house in the city when a staff unknowingly released water, pushing him nearly 25 feet inside the concrete pipeline due to the force of the water.

After a seven-hour long rescue operation, which started at about 0830 hours, Muduli was rescued and taken to the S C B Medical College and Hospital for treatment.

The rescue teams had to drill the concrete pipeline as the old man was stuck inside the narrow pipeline and unable to move.

The man was provided with oxygen, water and glucose and asked not to panic. The rescue team and doctors monitored his health condition at regular interval.

As per the pumping station authorities since the pipeline was only 2.5 feet in width, Pranakrushna pushed further inside for several feet and remained trapped inside.

The authorities soon deployed the ODRAF and Fire Brigade officials, who rushed to the spot and launched the rescue operation by cutting the concrete pipeline to rescue the trapped man.

The incident took place at around 0830 hours near the State police signal headquarters at Lower Police Colony here. Pranakrushna was cleaning the pipeline when the mishap occurred.
