Women's bodies go through many changes and pains. A mother gives birth to a child after carrying it in her womb for nine months. However, this Brazilian woman was carrying a fetus in her stomach for 56 long years. However, she was not aware of this. She finally realized this when she were taken to the hospital due to severe stomach pain. Tragically, she died shortly after surgery to remove the embryo.

According to reports, 81-year-old Daniela Vera carried a lifeless fetus in her womb for five decades. But she had no clue about it. While crossing the border from Brazil to Paraguay, Daniela suddenly felt a terrible stomach ache. Daniela underwent surgery at Ponta Pora Regional Hospital. However, she died shortly after this.

When Daniela was taken to the hospital due to abdominal pain, the doctors found an embryo called Lithopedion in her stomach. This is a condition in which the fetus loses its life inside the womb and later becomes stone-like due to calcium deposits (stone baby).
