Hoaxes and Urban Legends: Children buried alive in Egypt, saved by Jesus

A chain letter going around since at least 2006 claims that a Muslim father in Egypt killed his wife for reading the bible, then buried their children alive with her, but the children miraculously survived for 15 days because Jesus came to help them.

The facts: Despite the claim that the "country is outraged" about the incident, there have not been any news reports about any such incident in Egypt. There is no evidence that any of this ever happened. The origin of the story can not be traced. Please read the article on the subject for more details.

One version of the chain letter: "Father murders his wife and buried his children ALIVE"



A Muslim man in Egypt killed his wife because she was reading the Bible
and then buried her with their infant baby and an 8-year old daughter.
The girls were buried alive! He then reported to the police that an uncle
killed the kids.
15 days later, another family member died. When they went to bury him,
they found the 2 little girls under the sand - ALIVE!
The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed.
The older girl was asked how she had survived and she says:- 'A man
wearing shiny white clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every
day to feed us. He woke up my mom so she could nurse my sister,' she said.
She was interviewed on Egyptian national TV, by availed Muslim woman news
anchor. She said on public TV, 'This was none other than Jesus, because
nobody else does things like this!' Muslims believe Isa (Jesus) would do
this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it's clear also
that He is alive! But, it's also clear that the child could not make up a
story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived
without a true miracle. Muslim leaders are going to have a hard time to
figure out what to do with this, and the popularity of the Passion movie
doesn't help! With Egypt at the center of the media and education in the
Middle East , you can be sure this story will spread.
