An elderly woman "almost fainted" when she discovered her daughter had bought her a new mattress, and thrown away the old one which contained the woman's life savings
. The daughter rushed to get the mattress back but she was too late. It had been mixed up with another 3,000 tonnes of rubbish collected that day. A search of 3 different landfills have failed to turn up the $1 million dollar mattress. "People have to take everything in proportion and thank God for the good and the bad," said the daughter. Her mother had no comment.
