Police in northern China have charged a person with attempted murder after he allegedly buried his mother in an abandoned grave, where she was found traumatized but alive after three days covered by loose dirt.
The man’s wife told police her husband carried his mother away during a wheelbarrow on May 2. When she did not return three days later, police were informed and therefore the man was placed in detention in Shaanxi province’s Jingbian county.
Rescuers said despite the woman’s ordeal, she was faintly calling for help as she was freed, consistent with a police statement.
The grave was excavated on May 5 and therefore the woman was found alive but weak. She was taken to the hospital and is now in stable condition.
