A graveyard is certainly up there as one of the most dreaded.

Now, plenty of us will sheepishly admit to having woken up in some rather peculiar scenarios.

In a field, in the garden, in someone's bathroom... Yep, we've all been there.

But we can blame most of these situations on having a little too much fun the night before.

To put it simply - they are mostly as a result of drinking too much and partying a little too hard.

But, despite it being a little disorientating and uncomfortable to begin with...

via: Getty

We can simply get up, brush ourselves down, continue with our day, and have a good laugh about it later.

But there are some scenarios that are a little more traumatizing than others...

via: Getty

And people certainly do not laugh about them.

Those with slightly darker minds may have worried, or simply wondered, about what it would be like to wake up in a graveyard or a morgue.

I mean, the chances of it actually happening are pretty slim, but it's still a stomach-churning thought, all the same.

Being mistakenly pronounced as dead is everyone's worst nightmare.

Because we all know what happens to someone's body once they've passed away...

But, for one unfortunate woman, this nightmare recently became a reality.

It sounds completely horrifying, doesn't it?

How on earth can you mistake a living, breathing human for a corpse? Well, here's the explanation...

Ma Mou, who is fifty-eight, is the son of this unfortunate lady...

And the elderly woman who resided in north-western China's Shaanxi province, whose name is currently unknown, has been paralyzed for several years now.

Ma's wife noticed that earlier this week, her mother-in-law was missing...

via: Getty

So she alerted the authorities on Tuesday after noticing her husband had taken his mother out on Saturday but didn't return with her.

The son had an alibi, but people weren't convinced.

via: Getty

Ma reportedly said he had sent his mother away to stay with relatives, but his wife soon became suspicious.

Jingbian Police launched an investigation into her disappearance and the 58-year-old suspect was summoned to the police station...

via: Getty

And it didn't take long for the man to confess to burying his mother in a deserted tomb, south of Jingbian County.

She was still alive when her son buried her.

via: Getty

When officers arrived at the site they could hear faint cries for help - she was miraculously still alive after 3 days of being buried.

Shocking footage emerged from when the officers made their grisly discovery...

via: YouTube

They found the burial pit and they managed to dig the unfortunate woman out.

She was rushed to hospital immediately...

via: YouTube

And incredibly, she remains in a stable condition.

Ma has been detained on suspicion of attempted murder and remains in custody...

via: YouTube

Which, by the looks of things, is exactly what needs to be done.

People all around the world have been left mortified by the ordeal...

via: Getty

And many have questioned how on earth someone could do this to their own mother?!

This man clearly didn't care for his mother...

via: Getty

"He did not want his mother anymore - too much to take care of and he did not really love his mother. If he did he would. Find other ways to take care of her. Amen," one social media user wrote.

We hope the unfortunate lady makes a quick recovery soon.
