Horrifically, this infant in Thailand was discovered buried in the earth, with knife wounds all over his body. Thank goodness, a woman tending the nearby farm heard his wails, and took the baby to safety. Now, a Swedish couple will soon adopt the boy.
A farm woman, named Kachit Krongyut, was taking her cows out to graze on her farm in the district of Wangai, Thailand, when she heard what sounded like wailing. The sound was coming from a nearby soil patch, which looked like it had recently been dug up.
At first Kachit, 53, thought someone had buried a small animal. But then to her horror, she saw that a baby’s foot was partially sticking out of the soil. After pulling the infant from a shallow grave about 20 cm deep, she saw that the baby had what appeared to be knife wounds all over his body. It seems someone had left the poor thing to die.
“I tried to control myself and called for help. The baby was buried with its face facing down,” she told local media.
This little baby boy was discovered by a farm women in Thailand.
He was rescued from a shallow grave 20 cm deep.
The newborn’s body was covered with what appeared to be 14 knife wounds on his body.
The baby, now named Aidin, was immediately taken to the Wangai hospital, where the doctors determined based on old bruises on the child’s stomach that he had suffered from long-term abuse ever since he was born. Afterward, the woman’s husband Pornchain told police that he had seen footprints in the soil, as well as motorcycle tracks nearby. This led to the discovery of the suspect, a 42-year-old mother, who is now being charged with attempted murder, and abandoning her child.
Little Aidin has now recovered, and will soon be adopted by a couple from Sweden.
Supachai Pathimchart, from the Kaen Thong Orphanage where the child was living said that, “[all] of the safety checks have been carried out to make sure Aidin goes to a good home… We’re very happy that he will be going to a good home and [will] have a comfortable life… He survived a very bad experience but he has a lot of character and he’s happy with life.”
The “miracle baby” is now up for adoption in Thailand.
Such cruelty is simply unimaginable, and people definitely need to speak up and act when they see something like this. Moreover, we ought to be even more attentive to setting a positive example for others in society—for it does make a difference to demonstrate good morals wherever we go, and with whomever we meet.
