At first, the doctors believed they had discovered further evidence of a tumor in Melendez’s belly. But after they ordered a second X-ray, the medics realized that something far stranger was going on. Yes, there was a foreign body in Melendez’s uterus – but it wasn’t a tumor.
Shockingly, doctors discovered that the lump was actually the calcified remains of a human fetus. What is more, they suspected that Melendez had been carrying it in her uterus for more than 60 years. And, amazingly, the elderly woman had no idea that she had ever even been pregnant.
