KATHMANDU — A brain dead woman, who was kept alive on life support for 123 days — the longest period ever– after suffering a stroke while nine weeks pregnant in a tragic case that has made medical history,  has given birth to twins.

Doctors have successfully delivered the baby boy and girl by emergency caesarean section in a “miracle” birth, but their mum died following the procedure.

21-year-old Frankielen da Silva Zampoli Padilha from Brazil died nine weeks into her pregnancy in October, 2016 after suffering a cerebral haemorrhage. Her ventilator was switched off in February this year and her heart and kidneys were donated,according to a report in Daily Mail.

Doctors decided to save the nine-week-old embryos after their hearts continued to beat inside their mothers’ womb. The babies were born at seven months’ gestation in February and discharged from the hospital in the end of May.

Reportedly, her husband Muriel Padilha described the birth as a miracle after doctors said that they had no hope of surviving. Mr Padilha, who has a two-year-old daughter with his deceased wife recalled the last few hours with her.

He told Daily Mail that he was on his way to his job as a farmer, when Frankielen called, begging him to come home because her head was hurting her and she felt she was going to collapse.

He found her shaking, crying, dizzy and vomiting from the pain.

“As I drove her to hospital, she said “I want you to be prepared to accept this because I will be staying there, I won’t be coming home”.”

Dr Dalton Rivabem, head of neurological ICU at the hospital said, ‘We did an ultrasound on the embryos thinking they would be failing in the womb but to our surprise, they were clinging to life.’

The doctors, nurses, nutritionists, physiotherapists and other medical staff in the hospital sang, talked and caressed Fankielen’s pregnancy bump to provide love and support to the growing foetus.

Well-wishers from all over Brazil donated money, baby clothes and nappies to support the family.

Gorkha Post



BELFAST – A woman, fed up with searching for the perfect man, has married the ghost of a 300-year-old pirate and says he’s her ‘soulmate’.

Amanda, 45, who searched for her soulmate in the afterlife after failing to connect with any real-life men, has married a Haitian pirate named Jack who died in the 1700s.

Her love affair with Jack, who was a thief on the high seas in the 1700s until he was caught and executed, began one night in 2014 when she was lying in bed and felt his energy appear beside her.

Astonishingly, after years of romance, Amanda managed to hire a registrar and journey into international waters where she could legally marry the smitten spirit.

Amanda Teague, mother of five from her ex-husband, even used a spiritual medium at the wedding to allow him to say “I do” during the ceremony on a boat off the Irish coast where her friends and family attended.

Like any ordinary couple, Amanda says, the couple live a fairly normal life; including having rows, going on dates, and even having an active sexual life.
