FOX 4 NEWS- Doctors in Chile say that they have found a “calcified fetus” in the stomach of a 92-year-old woman.

And the fetus has allegedly been in there for more than 50 years.

The condition is very rare and known as Lithopedion.

It happens when a fetus dies during pregnancy and then calcifies outside the womb.

However, the 92-year-old woman says that she was not aware that she was even pregnant!

Both she and her son are insisting that doctors told her years ago that she had a tumor.

The mummified fetus was found pretty recently. The woman had fallen and was taken to the hospital. She had an x-ray done and that’s how doctors found it.

But it’ll have to stay put.

Doctors say that removing the fetus now would be deadly.
