    The paralysed woman from Shaanxi Province had to spend three days in a grave before her desperate calls for help were heard, as her son could no longer stand taking care of her, according to reports.

    A 59-year-old man from China has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after burying his paralysed mother alive, the newspaper China Daily reported. According to police, the wife of the suspect stated that her husband had carried his 79-year-old mother away in a wheelbarrow. The woman spent three days in the abandoned cemetery, covered by loose dirt before she was rescued.

    A video, shared by users on social media, depicts the alleged moment when she was saved from the terrifying death.

    ​The Jingbian County prosecutor's office told journalists that an investigation was underway but didn't provide further details on the case.
