another article on what I think is the same find. Claiming this is the most complete pre-human skeleton ever?

Just on the pic alone it looks very complete, rapidly buried and fossilised where it died and luckily encased in a harder rock than usual keeping it together. Most hominid remains are very spread out or have rotted/broken up before burial or where dispersed after burial due to erosion processes.
