Israeli woman throws away $1million mattress

A Tel Aviv woman has been searching through Israeli rubbish dumps after accidentally throwing away a mattress containing $1m (£700,000).

The woman, identified only as Anat, had bought a new mattress for her mother as a surprise and threw away the old one, Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported.

But when the older woman returned home she "almost fainted", as she had hidden her entire life savings inside.

A search of three landfill sites has so far turned up nothing, said the paper.

When the woman realised her mistake, she rushed out to retrieve the mattress but it had already been taken away to the Hiriya local dump.

I have been told of people finding a couple of grand under carpets when moving house, but $1m in a mattress!
