A woman from the Kirovsk region in Western Russia is facing charges of the attempted murder of her one-month-old baby boy, the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office was quoted by Gazeta.ru as saying.

The mother reportedly stabbed her son in the neck twice, wrapped him in a blanket and buried his body in her vegetable garden. Thinking the baby was dead she told her husband that kidnappers had attacked her and seized the boy. The husband called the police, who came and found the baby still alive having spent eight hours underground.

Fortunately, his wounds were not fatal, but he has contracted pneumonia after spending so long in the cold and damp ground.
