Motor buried in loose mud after bore collapse : Need advice to retrieve motor

The depth of the borewell is 200'. The motor stopped pumping water as the motor got buried in loose mud caused by the collapse of the bore. The motor is attached to a HDPE pipe. Attempt to lift if with chain block failed as we were afraid of the hose breaking off. What is the best method of recovering the motor? How to prevent this from happening again?
