The Thai baby boy Aidin, who was cruelly stabbed at least 14 times and found buried alive in a field in Khon Kaen province in northeastern Thailand back in February, will start his bright future in the family of a Swedish couple.

The baby, now seven months old, will soon be adopted by a Swedish couple after being in the care of Kaen Thong Orphanage since he was abandoned by his mother earlier this year, according to Supachai Pathimchart, a staff member at the orphanage.

On 23 February, a cattle raiser rescued the baby after she saw his foot emerging from the soil under a eucalyptus tree in Wang Yai district. The child was immediately sent to Khon Kaen Provincial Hospital and was named Aidin or “earth smell” by the hospital staff.

The doctor said it was the earth that helped stop the bleeding from the baby’s stab wounds.


Aidin’s mother, who was only identified as a 42-year-old woman, was later tracked down and charged for attempted murder and abandoning her own child.
