Raw Video: Chinese Woman Gives Birth To 13.75-Pound Baby

Here is an unlikely story which you might have never even imagined or heard of. The puberty of a woman is usually over by the time she is in her forties. But well this incident might just contradict this medical conclusion.

Huang Yijun a ninety-two year old woman from Huangjiaotan, Southern China, has been pregnant and carrying a baby for the past 60 years since 1948 in her womb.

The news broke out when Yijun hurt her stomach recently and went to a hospital for a scan.

"I couldn't believe my eyes when I discovered she had a baby in her belly. I've been a doctor for more than forty years and it's the first time I have seen something like this," said Dr. Liu Anbin one of the of the consultants treating her at Qingshen hospital.

"Normally a dead foetus would decay. It's very rare that Huang can be so healthy," said Consultant Xu Xianming who is the director of the department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology .

Yijun told that her baby had died way back in 1948 but she did not remove it and ignored the operation because the doctors then would charge her about $140 which was quite a huge amount for her. It was much more than what her whole family managed to make in several years.
