A newborn baby in Thailand has miraculously survived such a horrifying ordeal in the hands of her own mother.
Aidin was just seven-months-old when her 42-year-old mother stabbed her 14 times and buried her alive in a 20cm shallow grave.
As angels truly roam the earth, a cattle herder heard her cries and found her tiny foot sticking out of the soil.

The 53-year-old, Kachit Krongyut, immediately dug up the soil using her bare hands and saw that the baby was lying face-down on the ground. Aidin was buried by his mom right beneath a eucalyptus tree.
Wasting no time, Kachit rushed the baby to the hospital where she was given immediate medical care.
According to the doctors who tended to her wounds, the pressure coming from the soil saved the baby, preventing the little one from bleeding to death.
They also found out that the baby had bruises on her stomach, signifying that she was abused by her mother.
Baby Aidin has fully recovered and is set to be adopted by a Swedish couple.
From the time that Baby Aidin was brought to the hospital, and until he recovered, he was under the care of the Kaen Thong Orphanage.

According to Kachit and her husband Pornchai, had they not rescued Aidin at that precise time, he wouldn’t have been able to survive.
The authorities have found the mother and she has been charged with attempted murder and abandoning child.
