Witnesses said the woman was leaving flowers at a family grave at about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Bragarps church in Skane when her leg sank into the muddy terrain and became stuck, The Local reported Thursday.
Emergency responders were called to free the woman and she required no medical attention, witnesses said.
"I have been working here for 11 years and I have never seen anything like this," the Rev. Jonas Kristiansson said.
Kristiansson said recent rains caused subsidence in several areas of the graveyard. He said workers plan to repair the grave Thursday.
