LACEY, WASHINGTON: It’s not every day that we have a life-threatening experience and live to tell the tale, but Young Sook An, 42, has done just that. In a horrifying account, she said she was buried alive by her husband Chae Kyong An, 53. She survived by wiggling her nose to make spaces in the dirt so that she could breathe and give her time to save herself, said a report.

Young and Chae have reportedly been estranged from each other, following marital discord. Young was kidnapped from her home in Lacey on October 16 and it is informed by the Lacey Police Department that the incident took place when the couple’s children were away from the premises. Authorities came after being informed about ‘muffled screaming’ by the neighbors and passersby.

When the authorities showed up at Young’s door, they were greeted to an open door and duct tape that was left on the floor. The statement by the Lacey Police Department states, “The resident, Young An, has a domestic violence protection order against her estranged husband, Chae An.”

Following the report filed of Young’s disappearance, the Lacey Police Department issued a missing person’s alert on its social media handles and the mobile phones of all residents in the area. Later, it was reported by the Daily Star that one of the residents of the town had woken up to her door being knocked at at 12:42 am in the morning. The resident opened her door to find Young begging her to let her in, telling her that her husband “was trying to kill her.” The resident then called the police and she was then taken to the hospital to be treated for non-lethal injuries.

She informed the investigators that she was driven to the woods by Chae, who stabbed her and buried her alive. After getting out of the burial pit, she kept walking through the woods, trying to find a way out of there. The next day, Chae was arrested after his vehicle was spotted. He is charged with attempted murder and assault, kidnapping and domestic violence.

This is not the first time such incidents have taken place. Earlier MEAWW reported that a 79-year-old woman named Wang Mou was rescued in China in May 2020, three days after her own son had buried her alive in a tomb. She was reported missing by her daughter-in-law, who suspected suspicious activity. She was rescued by the police and when she did wake up, she lay still with no signs of life. But later, she came to her senses and was taken to a local hospital to treat her for wounds. The incident was nothing short of miraculous, because she had survived for three whole days in the deep graveyard pit, with no food or water.
