This woman gave birth to a 50 year old mummy baby

A Lithopedion is better known as a stone baby, is actually a calcified mass, which used to be a live foetus. Although this condition is extremely rare and odd, it does happen. In 1955 a 26 year old woman named Zahra Aboutalib was rushed to the hospital to deliver her baby.
Sadly,  after an excruciating 48 hour labor, she still could not deliver the baby, hence  the doctors decided that she should to undergo a caesarean section. The thought of dieing in child labor terrified the woman and urged her to flee the hospital and go back to the comfort of her home.
After doing so, she gave birth nearly 50 years later to a mummy baby.
