Two Egyptian Children Buried for 15 Days Say Jesus Saved Their Lives-Unproven!

Summary of eRumor:

The eRumor says a Muslim man in Egypt killed his wife then buried his infant and 8-year old daughters alive with his wife’s body.  

Fifteen days later after another family member died and the grave was opened, the children were found alive.  

The eRumor says the father will be executed for the crime.  

The older girl says she survived through the help of a man in “shiny white clothes” and with “bleeding wounds in his hands.”  She later told an Egyptian television interviewer that it must have been Jesus because “nobody else does things like that.”
 

The Truth:

There is no substantiation for this story.  We have not found any evidence of a Muslim man who killed his wife and buried his children alive with her.

It has all the evidence of being a fabricated story.

As with many contrived stories, this one has no names and details about when or where the alleged story took place.   In other words, there aren’t enough facts to allow confirming the story if it were true.  

Some versions of this email claim it is an excerpt from an Egyptian newspaper but that the name of the paper is “being kept confidential.”
