Lama updatesThe search teams involved in recovering the remains of six-year-old Lama Al-Rouqi have sighted the body about 38 meters down the well.

Various teams of workers have been occupied for over 40 days in the mission of retrieving the body of Lama, who had fallen to her death in a bore-well in Tabuk.

Forensic tests done on partial remains that were recovered from the well earlier this month confirmed that it was that of Lama.

After days of searching, the workers of Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Maaden) finally spotted the child’s body using a thermal camera. There is no word on when they would be able to retrieve the body. They are taking measures to prevent the body from sliding further down the well.

According to Arab News, Civil Defense of Tabuk has neither confirmed nor refuted the latest report by Maadem.
