Baby is pulled alive from a grave–three days after his mother left him there to die

This baby has survived after being buried in a shallow grave for three days. But why did this South African mother bury him there? She offers a chilling reason.

When workers in a timber factory in South Africa heard a baby crying outside, they went out looking for it. Finally, they found a baby boy that had been buried alive in a shallow grave. After rescuing the baby from the makeshift grave, they were able to confirm that the baby had been left there to die by his mother three days ago.

The 25-year-old mother also works in the timber factory in the town of Paddock, in KwaZulu-Natal Province, eastern South Africa. She confessed to the police that she had buried her baby with sand and timber from the factory. She said she was afraid of her parents being upset with her having a second child.

“This was her second child, the elder one being four years old, and she felt her parents would not approve of another baby,” said Captain Gerald Mfeka, the Daily Mail UK reports.

The poor baby was sent to an intensive care unit in Port Shepstone Regional Hospital. Her mother was also taken the hospital and later released. It’s not yet known if she will be charged for the crime, or if she will be allowed to see her baby in the future.
