Family Living In A Farmhouse Basement For 9 Years Waiting For “The End Of Time”, Discovered

A 58-year-old man and six siblings, aged 18 to 25, lived in a farm basement in Drenthe, Netherlands, waiting for the world to end. The 58-year-old man is not their father nor the owner of the farmhouse, and the siblings’ mother is believed to have died before the family moved into the farmhouse. Dutch media revealed that the children were not registered, and that the family had no contact with the outside world, living self-sufficiently off a vegetable garden and a few animals. 

The family wouldn’t have been discovered if the eldest of the siblings hadn’t escaped and asked the staff at a pub in Ruinerwold for help. The family is in a safe place now, Mayor Roger de Groot said.
