Following the release of the viral photos of a baby who had been reported at the time to have been rescued by a dog, news reports have revealed that the child had actually been stabbed 14 times and found buried alive.
The baby was reportedly stabbed 14 times and had been buried face down in a 20cm deep hole in a field in the Wangyai district of Khon Kaen province in Thailand in February this year.
The woman who had rescued the baby, Kachit Krongyut, 53, reportedly disclosed that she had been taking her six cows to grave in the field where the baby had been buried when she had heard voices.
Upon her arrival at the spot where the child had been buried, Kachit had noticed a freshly dug up section of the field which she had proceeded to dig up only to find a baby’s foot.
Kachit had then screamed for help from her family who had helped her rescue the baby and then had him transferred to the hospital.
Speaking with bangkok.coconuts.co, Kachit said:
“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’s husband, Pornchai, who had reportedly helped with rescuing the baby also disclosed that he had noticed footprints and heard a motorbike close to the scene of the discovery, and informed police, who are now reported to be trying to track down its parents.
Miraculously, the baby boy has made an amazing recovery, looking healthy and well after his harrowing experience.
