Dr Liu Anbin at Qingshen hospital said: "I couldn't believe my eyes when I discovered she had a baby in her belly. I've been a doctor for more than 40 years, and it's the first time I have seen something like this." Now medics are carrying out further tests to see if Huang needs an operation to remove the baby. Consultant Xu Xianming, director of the Obstetrics and Gynecology department at the hospital, said: "Normally a dead foetus would decay. It's very rare that Huang can be so healthy." – thesun

It occurs when the fetus dies during abdominal pregnancy. Since it is too large to be reabsorbed by the body, it calcifies on the outside as part of a maternal foreign body reaction, shielding the mother's body from the dead tissue of the fetus and preventing infection. - Wikipedia
