A 35-week-old fetus has managed to kick through the wall of its mother’s uterus, according to doctors from Peking University Shenzhen Hospital in China.

In what has been described as an extremely rare case, an ultrasound shows the baby’s legs penetrating the uterus wall, where its thighs have become lodged.
