Skeleton found living inside mother for 38 years

20 August 2014, 19:01

Abuja - An Indian woman had a skeleton of a baby removed in her abdomen area after it was inside of her for 38 years, Daily Mail reported.

The woman became pregnant when she was 24 in 1978 but her baby had little chance of survival as it was growing outside of her womb. She was terrified of an operation and considered treatment elsewhere.

She had thought the complication was sorted until she started experiencing server pain at 62-years.

Doctors found a lump in her abdomen area and thought it could be cancer, but a scan revealed it was a skeleton of a baby and had it removed.
