It seems that the world gets a little more cruel every day – a little less caring. Maybe social media simply enables stories and reaches us farther than before, exposing us to information that we normally would not be subjected to.
Whatever your beliefs, few can credibly deny that there exist some stories that are unique even in a landscape of journalism bent on showcasing negative stories.
This particular story, about a group of South African factory employees who found a baby that had been buried in the ground (while still alive) by his mom certainly fits the bill.

When they heard some noise that sounded similar to crying outside their factory, the workers went out to look for the source of the crying. They soon dug up a beautiful baby boy who was still alive.
According to sources, the 25-year-old mother, who also was a worker in the same factory in the town of Paddock, KwaZulu-Natal Province, South Africa, left her baby boy in the ground because she thought her family would be angry.

Believing they would punish her for having another baby, she buried the boy in sand and timber in a barbaric and evil move.
As per the Daily Mail, Captain Gerald Mfeka said: “On hearing the commotion, the mother confessed that the child was hers. Her explanation was that she was afraid of her parents.

“This was her second child, the elder one being four years old, and she felt her parents would not approve of another baby.”
After being found by the factory workers, the baby was immediately taken to the hospital, where he is being treated for his injuries.
Prayers for this baby!
