The hole : Sunday Photo Fiction – November 01, 2015


128 11 November 1st 2015

“Sammy, where are you?” Sam’s dad called down the hole in the old mine shaft.

No answer at first. Then very softly came a tiny voice from deep out of the darkness.

“Daddy, Daddy!” Sam’s dad felt like jumping into the hole to comfort his little boy.

Again a faint:”Daddy, I’m afraid. Help me!”

“Don’t move son. I am calling for help. Everything will be okay. I am coming to rescue you! Just hang on son.”

Sammy’s dad called for help on his phone. He asked for ropes and extra people to climb down the deep hole. They had to hurry because it had already been twelve hours since Sammy got lost.

The rescue team came and found Sammy deep down the dark hole. They took Sammy to hospital. He was treated for dehydration and shock. Lucky for him that they found him on time.

Everybody warned about the dangerous open shaft. It was fenced off but it still wasn’t covered.

    1. Yes I agree. Every now and then you hear of a child disappearing and usually they are found in these horrible holes which are not covered as they should have been covered.
