Tel Aviv search for mattress containing $1M life savings -

JERUSALEM (CNN) -- It was supposed to be a pleasant surprise, but turned into the shock of a lifetime. A woman in Tel Aviv, Israel, gave her elderly mother a new mattress as a surprise gift, throwing out the old tattered bed her mother had slept on for decades. The gesture ended up bankrupting Annat's mother, who had stuffed her savings of nearly $1 million inside her old bed for decades, Annat told Israel Army Radio.

A massive search is under way at the city dump, where security has been beefed up to keep out treasure-seekers who have heard Annat's story in Israeli media.

Annat, who did not want to reveal the rest of her name, told Israel Army Radio that she woke up early Sunday to get a good deal on a new mattress as a surprise for her mother.

Holy FAIL! Batman. So anyone want to make a trip to Israel to retrace the steps of Jesus, and maybe visit the site of the famous sermon on the garbage mount?

On a side note if you go, keep the heels of your shoes on the ground. I guess souls upset them Israles. rimshot
