TNS reports that a mother who tried to single-handedly dig her way into a jail in Ukraine to free her murderer son is now facing being locked up herself.

The 51-year-old woman, who has not been named, rented a house near the jail in the southern Zaporizhia region where her son is serving a life sentence.

She then used shovels and pickaxes in order to dig a 10ft-deep tunnel in a nearby field which then ran for 35ft underground to just under the prison walls.

She dug only at night so as not to attract attention, arriving at the dig site on a silent electric scooter. According to a jail guard:

She had a kind of trolley, a piece of plywood with small wheels, so she could remove the soil. 

The soil was dumped near a disused garage, close to where the dig site was located. The woman had shifted some three tons of earth by the time she was caught and arrested, three weeks after starting her project in a report by TSN News.

During the day, the woman kept indoors so as not to attract attention as an outsider.

No details have been given about the identity of her son who is from Mykolaiv, a five-hour drive away, but is now jailed in the bleak penal colony.

During a search of the rented house, police found hand tools for digging. The woman won praise from Ukrainians:

This is a real mother, not one of those who abandon their children.
