In a tragic incident, three persons lost their lives apparently of asphyxiation after entering an well in Komaram Bheem Asifabad district of Telangana on Wednesday. 

The incident occurred when one person entered the 35-foot deep well to repair a motor and collapsed. Seeing this, another worker got in, but he too fell unconscious and the third worker then entered the well to rescue the two. In a matter of five minutes, all the three died, a police official told.

"The well was about 35 feet in height and had 12 foot deep water.  Since the well had remained unused for a long time, it started emitting poisonous gases, which is mainly because of the carbon dioxide present at the bottom,” said the officer.

The bodies were taken out by personnel of the Fire and Rescue Services, and have been kept at the Asifabad Hospital for a postmortem.

The deceased were in the age group of 19-25, the official said.
