CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) - Officials in Carlsbad are still struggling to find and force the sealing of abandoned wells after the tragic death of 4-year-old Samuel Jones.
Samuel fell into a well back in March and died from lack of air and cold temperatures.
Investigators think the child climbed a fence or got through a gate into his neighbor's backyard then fell into the open hole.
After Samuel's death, public complaints over the situation prompted the city council to ask police and fire chiefs to cover up abandoned wells.
But according to the Carlsbad Current Argus, officials say they can't do this alone and need the public's help in identifying these sites.
