An Israeli woman mistakenly threw out a mattress she said had almost $1 million inside, setting off a frantic search through tons of garbage at a number of landfill sites on Wednesday. The woman told The Associated Press that she bought her elderly mother a new mattress as a surprise present on Monday — and threw out the old one.

The next day, she said, she remembered that she had hidden her life savings inside the old mattress. "I woke up in the morning screaming, when it hit me what happened," said the Tel Aviv woman, who asked not to be identified.

How you forget your mother stashed away $1 million in the mattress, I don't know.

It wasn't the mother who hid the money, it was the daughter who bought the new mattress and threw out the old one! Can you say S T O O P I D?

Way too many pronouns. I can't figure out who did what.

I know, horribly written. I first heard it on Nightly News which did a much better job telling the story.

Okay, so I must've misheard the story on the news. I was under the impression the mother hid her life savings in the mattress, and daughter decides to buy mother a new mattress, throws out the old one, and then next day suddenly remembers the money.
