JOSE ROSELLO, the father of two-year-old Julen who died after falling down a seventy-two-metre borehole in Totalan, has thanked the rescue workers who tried to save his son.

Rosello said he and Julen’s mother, Victoria, are coping by staying with friends who are supporting them through their grief.

He explained they have tried to encourage him to play PlayStation games to concentrate on something else, “because I close my eyes and I see the same thing; the well.” Jose added: “And I curse myself… I curse that day.”

The father, who lost his only other son, Olivar, in 2017 to a sudden heart attack, said: “We used to live with my family, but when Olivar died we had to go, because everything was a memory.”

He added: “We’ve been staying at a friend’s house for three or four days.”

Mr Rosello told the media he and his family had been reading messages of support from around the world.

He said: “We have felt very supported. Even if the pain does not leave me, I will be eternally grateful for that.”
