Spain is in suspense for a tragedy that revives that of the small Alfredino Rampi of Vermicino.
Police and rescue teams are in a desperate race against time to try to locate a two-year-old boy who has fallen down a 350ft well.
The youngster, named only as Yulen, disappeared after plunging down the tiny 15-inch wide hole as his family were cooking with friends.
The well is situated in the area where he played in the property of a family member in the Sierra of Totalan near Malaga.
Firefighters have found a bag of sweets that the boy was carrying when he went missing on Sunday afternoon, said Maria Gamez, Spain’s government representative in Malaga province.
Rescuers believe the boy fell into the 100-metre deep waterhole in a mountainous area near the town of Totalan after he walked away from his parents.
The shaft, which is too narrow for an adult to enter, had been bored a month earlier during water prospection works and had not been covered or protected, local media reported.
