Buried alive


A gravedigger in Laren, Noord Holland, was buried alive last Tuesday when an excavated pile of sand fell back into the hole he was standing in. Two of his colleagues managed to escape the impromptu burial, Blik op Nieuws reports, but it took firemen half an hour to extract the third, a 50-year-old man from nearby Hilversum. Afterwards the man was transported to a hospital by an ambulance with what appeared to be light injuries.
