In the state of Arizona in the USA, Police have opened an investigation after a female patient who has been in a coma for ten years became pregnant and gave birth to a child on 29th December.
It is suspected the patient was sexually abused and attacked at the clinic she was in.
The clinic’s authorities have not given any details of the case but have stated the episode to be most disconcerting.
The baby is said to be in good health while it is being reported that nurses at the clinic were not even aware she was pregnant.
Although investigations are taking place it is not known whether a formal Inquiry has been launched.
