Somewhere in Chile, a 92-year-old woman had fallen and needed x-rays, according to NewsOXY. The results did not find broken bones but a 50-year-old fetus inside her abdomen. The large 4.4 pound calcified fetus was outside the woman’s uterus. Known as a lithopedion, sometimes called a “stomach rock” or a “stone child,” this rare occurrence can happen when the fertilized egg is implanted outside of the uterus (known as an ectopic pregnancy). Doctors will not be removing the fetus—the risk is too great, and the surgery can be dangerous, especially for someone at an advanced age.
