There's "a frantic search" ('ya think so?) under way in Israel for a mattress that has cash equivalent to $1 million hidden inside -- but was mistakenly (we say again ... 'ya think so?) THROWN AWAY!

According to the Associated Press, the story is that a woman in Tel Aviv bought her mom a new mattress and then took the old one out to the trash -- only to discover later that mom had been stuffing her life savings into the bedding.

The BBC says mom "almost fainted" when she discovered what had happened (again, we gotta say ... 'ya think so?!).
