She's Got One Foot in the Grave

We present to you our headline of the day:

Woman left with one foot in a grave after rainfall
A woman tending to a family grave in a churchyard in southern Sweden on Wednesday was left three feet under after her leg sank through soil rendered sodden by the recent heavy rains.

The incident happened at around 5.30pm on Wednesday at Brågarps church in Skåne in the far south of Sweden, the local Sydsvenskan daily reported.

As the woman was bending over to leave flowers by the tombstone her leg began sinking into the soft earth and she was left marooned with one foot in the grave.

Luckily for the woman there were several witnesses to her plight as the church was due to hold an evening service. The emergency services were called and were able to extract her safely from the grave.
