Loud cry from cemetery not ghost – it’s a child buried alive

SEVERAL women, who got frightened after hearing a crying sound from a cemetery, were relieved and horrified at the same time when they found out that a child had been buried alive, Makkal Osai reported.

The women who live in a village in Patna, which is the capital of India’s Bihar state, were collecting firewood near the cemetery when they heard the sound.

They were terrified and ran away, thinking that it was a ghost. Soon, they came back with a group of villagers and began looking for the source of the sound.

They eventually detected that the crying sound was coming from below ground.

They quickly began digging and found a little girl buried alive. Her mouth was filled with earth.

The villagers pulled the child out and immediately sent her to a nearby hospital.

As it turned out, the girl could name her parents but did not know the village where she lived.

Apparently, the girl’s mother and grandmother had brought her to the cemetery and tried to silence her crying by stuffing her mouth with earth.

They then dug a grave, buried her and presumably left her for dead.
