Doctors In India Remove Baby Skeleton Left In Mother For 36 Years (VIDEO)

Doctors in India have successfully removed a baby skeleton that had been inside a woman for 36 years.

What's now being called the world's longest ectopic pregnancy, Kantabai Thakre, 60, got pregnant in 1978 at the age of 24.

According to reports, after finding out her baby had little chance of survival, Thakre got scared of undergoing an operation and went back to her village, according to the Daily Mail. It wasn't until the past few months, more than 30 years later, that Thakre began to feel constant pain in her abdomen and developed a lump.
