A man got buried alive for trying to steal a coffin in a cemetery

On Monday morning around 11am a security guard at a cemetery contacted the police about a man who was hurried waist down in a gave at Avalon Cemetery in Soweto, south of Johannesburg
. The man is an alleged victim of mob justice and it was further alleged that the man spent 2 days in the grave.
Police spokesperson Capt Mavela Masondo said officers responded to the cemetery at a cemetery about a 31-year-old man who was buried waist down in a shallow grave.

The the 31-year-old man was allegedly assaulted by community members, who than dragged him out to the cemetery where they tied his feet with shoelaces and dug a grave for him. Thus hole assault incident happened on Saturday and the man was discovered on Monday. So that means he was sleeping in the cemetery for 2 hole days.

A video clip of the incident shows the man who was buried in the sand pleading with the people to take him out. Some were even trying to be sure if he can go out or is he just playing around. Eventually they ask him why they did this to him and he didn't respond.



It appears that in the video the man had initially tried to dig himself out however he didn't get any luck. Eventually the man just gives up and lays on his back. Paramedics were called and they were able to treat the man right on the scene before he was transported to hospital.

It is currently unclear why the man was being buried in the first place however there has been a lot if people saying that he was a grave robber since he has been buried in cemetery
