A baby boy in Thailand is being hailed a miracle baby after he survived being stabbed 14 times and being buried alive by his own mom.
According to the Mirror, Kachit Krongyut was taking her cows to graze on her farm in the district of Wangai, Thailand, in February of 2016 when she heard what sounded like soft wailing coming from the dirt.
The soil patch around looked like it had been recently disturbed, so Kachit decided to check it out. What she found ended up sending shock-waves across the internet!
She was absolutely horrified to realize that a baby’s foot was peeking out from the mud. Kachit immediately leapt into action, digging the baby out of the earth with her hands and calling for help.
“At first, I thought someone had buried their pet alive, but then I saw a foot. I tried to control myself and called for help. The baby was buried with its face facing down.” Kachit told local media.
After she got the child out of the shallow grave, Kachit discovered he had been stabbed 14 times all over his body. Someone was determined to end his young innocent life.
The baby boy was rushed to Wangai hospital, where doctors found out that he’d been suffering abuse from birth.
As it was later discovered, the weight of the soil the baby had been buried under had actually saved him! The soil provided pressure that stemmed the blood flow from the stab wounds.

After investigations, the police found and arrested the child’s 42-year-old mother. She was charged with attempted murder and child abandonment.
Fortunately, the baby boy, named Aidin, made a miraculous recovery. Aidin was taken to an orphanage after completing treatment and was later adopted by a loving couple from Sweden.
We can’t begin to imagine the sort of pain Aidin must have gone through, but we thank God he survived it all and found a kind family to love him.
