What lies beneath

An Israeli woman is desperately searching through a local dump for a mattress she discarded but then later found that it held her mother’s life savings.

According to media reports, the 40-year old woman had wanted to surprise her elderly mother by purchasing a new mattress for her, she took the old mattress to the dump and thought nothing more of it until her mother revealed that it had been stuffed with the equivalent of a million US Dollars.

Workers at the dump are now helping the woman to search through the rubbish in the hope that she may recover the money, although as yet the mattress has not to be found.
