Woman rescues buried-alive baby – and they meet 20 years later!

Matthew Whitaker is lucky to be alive today after he was found buried alive in some woods as a baby back in 1998 by Azita Milanian, who was out jogging.

One of Azita’s dogs alerted her to Matthew’s feet sticking out from a shallow grave in Altadena, California, revealing:

โ€œHe went after something and I thought it was a dead animal or creature. Then, as I looked deeper in the dirt, I could see it was a child. I screamed. There was a blue towel, and there was a baby in there.โ€

Getting no success with calling 911, Atiza flagged down a passing motorist who headed to the local police station while she stayed with Matthew:

โ€œHe grabbed my wrist and stopped crying. It was very emotional. What kind of sick human would do something like that? He still had his umbilical cord hanging from his stomach.โ€

Matthew’s biological mother was never found and he was put up for adoption, only finding out about his amazing escape from death recently from his godmother.

20 years on, and Matthew decided to go to the place where he was left…

And had an emotional reunion with the woman who saved his life!

Having reconnected, they now plan on staying in contact with each other…
