Beautiful boy thriving with adoptive family
This was the case of small Aidan, an extreme survivor who is now 7 months old, and whose extraordinary story caused a stir recently on social media.
A few days after his birth in Thailand, the boy was buried alive after suffering no less than 14 stab wounds in an act of cruelty and terror.
Strikingly, the baby was found alive by Kachit Krongyut, a farmer who saw his little foot out of the ground beneath a eucalyptus. Kachit heard the boy crying and, astonished, he realized that he had just found a living baby, beneath the earth.
“I thought someone had buried an animal, a pet still alive, but then I saw a foot. I tried to control myself so I could help. The baby had been buried with the face turned down. It was amazing,” says Kachit who dug with his own hands to save the infant survivor and took him to a local hospital.
Doctors explained that the soil pressure against the fragile body of Aidan prevented him from bleeding to death.
” A few more hours and he would not have survived. We are very happy that he has found a loving home. He will do good on earth, we are sure of that,“said the farmer, after past the unbelievable drama.
Through evidence gathered at the scene of the crime, police were led to Aidan’s mother, a 42 year-old woman who, doctors say, may have otherwise abused the boy before trying to kill him.
Abortion advocates claim that she did it because abortion is illegal in Thailand.
