China Earthquake: How A Mother Saved Her Son (An Emotional Story) by maxproxl: 7:45am On Sep 04, 2011
This is a true story of a Mother’s Sacrifice during the China Earthquake.
After the Earthquake had subsided, when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward, and her two hands were supported by an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head.

With so many difficulties, the leader of the rescue team put his hand through a narrow gap on the wall to reach the woman’s body. He was hoping that this woman could be still alive. However, the cold and stiff body told him that she had passed away for sure.
He and the rest of the team left this house and were going to search the next collapsed building. For some reasons, the team leader was driven by a compelling force to go back to the ruin house of the dead woman. Again, he knelt down and used his had through the narrow cracks to search the little space under the dead body. Suddenly, he screamed with excitement,” A child! There is a child! “

The whole team worked together; carefully they removed the piles of ruined objects around the dead woman. There was a 3 months old little boy wrapped in a flowery blanket under his mother’s dead body. Obviously, the woman had made an ultimate sacrifice for saving her son. When her house was falling, she used her body to make a cover to protect her son. The little boy was still sleeping peacefully when the team leader picked him up.

The medical doctor came quickly to exam the little boy. After he opened the blanket, he saw a cell phone inside the blanket. There was a text message on the screen. It said,” If you can survive, you must remember that I love you.” This cell phone was passing around from one hand to another. Every body that read the message wept. ” If you can survive, you must remember that I love you.” Such is the mother’s love for her child!!

And it's written in Chinese. Yeah, this story is made up, but it's still a good story about motherhood.

Well if you look closely at the picture, the legs you see is actually the mothers legs,  the baby is wrapped in the blanket and all you can see from the baby is his little head by the mothers head. It is actually a 3 month old because my 3 month old's head is the same size, the two arms that you see is the mothers arms wrapped around the baby, try and hold your arms the same way and you will see how the bottom arm is showing the pinky finger up first. Hold your right arm on top like you were to hold the baby like she is, and hold your left arm like it would be under the baby but instead of holding your wrist to the right, hold it to the left and that is how she is showing the pinky up first,  in case you were wandering who's hand that was, it is the mothers.  and it only takes a few seconds to text a message, obviously this story was translated to English, so it could very well be real! And if not it was a sad and heartwarming story of a mothers love for her child.

This is fake, unless the mother has two hips and can stretch her hand above what is humanly possible. She would also have to had located her phone, texted in Chinese, and then had enough time to jump over her baby, all the while the building around her is collapsing on top of her. What she is holding is nothing younger than a four year old and there are no reliable news stories on the internet carrying this story.

She dosnt have two hips what you thinking is a second hip is actually the mothers legs and knee, this legs are intierly too big for that little baby head , maybe the story's made up, but the picture of a mother trying to save her child is real!! So it depends how u look at it either way that baby is only 3 or. 4 months old just look at the picture the legs are the mothers
Re: China Earthquake: How A Mother Saved Her Son (An Emotional Story) by Nobody: 5:14pm On Sep 18, 2011

I can clearly see a woman in a skirt and shirt with one leg and arm in the dirt and the other arm over a boy of 7-10 years who is wearing trousers and a shirt. I can see that the boy is underneath the woman and one hand is over her head, I can see five clear fingers that are on the right hand of the boy with the thumbs hidden.

How can a human being have two right hands or twist their hand like that unless it's completely broken off? There is absolutely no baby there.
