39. At Least The Baby Is Alive

When I was on an ER rotation during med school, we got a call about a 23-year-old woman who was shot in the head, and who was already completely gone, but was reportedly five months pregnant, so they were doing CPR until they got her to the hospital to see if the baby was viable.

They got her to the ER and did an ultrasound and turned out the baby was full-term, so they did a C-section in like under a minute and got the baby out.

I don’t think it’s so incredibly uncommon but it was pretty surreal to see a baby delivered from a dead person with their brain exposed and she was pretty close to the same age I was at the time.
