Ok this must be the weirdest story I have seen in a long time!
Worshippers of the World Liberation Ministry in Benin-City, Nigeria, took to their heels during a prophesy programme on Tuesday when a female member gave birth to a horse.
The horse was however dead by the time journalists visited the church.
It was gathered that the woman whose identity is not known started screaming during the prayer session and began to bleed from the vagina before the horse came out.
The General Overseer of the church, Evangelist Silva Wealth, said he was still amazed at what came out of the woman.
He told journalists that during prayers a revelation came that there was a woman with an issue and that something was blocking her womb.
Silva said as prayers intensified, the woman started screaming and bleeding started when the object came out.
The cleric said he couldn’t confirm whether the horse was dead or alive because he didn’t go near it.
“I can’t describe the object. We have seen people that vomited several things during our service but not this type of thing. God has been blessing our ministry with prophesies and miracles, “he said.
People rushed to the church to catch a glimpse of the horse when news of the delivery filtered into town.
A man in South Korea is claiming that his dog gave birth to what looks like a kitten.
Jeong Pyong-bong, a 63-year-old man from South Jeolla Province said that his dog gave birth to what looks and sounds like a baby cat.
“It is unbelievable,” said Jeong. “People from all over the town are coming over after hearing the news.”
He said the mother dog seems to have become pregnant after wondering around the town last May.
However experts said it is theoretically “impossible for a dog to give birth to a cat.”
“The number and trait of chromosomes in Canines and felines are completely different. It is possible that (the animal) is a puppy that looks like a kitten” said Professor Son Chang-ho of Chonnam National University’s College of Veterinary medicine.
A woman who thought she was pregnant for five months has told of her shock after giving birth to a worm.
Anna Mbizi, 38, went for regular check-ups at a doctor’s surgery and was told she was pregnant with her third child without the benefit of an ultrasound scan.
“I consulted my doctor when I was two months pregnant and was told everything was normal. This was going to be my third baby,” Mbizi said.
But on Sunday morning, Mbizi, of North End in Bulawayo, says her world came crashing down after she “gave birth” to a worm in the bathroom.
She said: “When I experienced the pains, I thought I was going to miscarry but I was shocked when a worm came out.”
Mbizi says her boyfriend has abandoned her, saying: “I really thought I was five months pregnant as I had all the signs and symptoms of a pregnant woman. I am still short of words.
“I am afraid my boyfriend is going to leave me. He really wanted a baby and now that I delivered a worm, I am not his favourite person.” Her doctor described her situation as “unusual”.
“I examined the woman three months ago and she appeared to be two months pregnant, but when she came back on Sunday night nothing indicated that she had been pregnant although there were signs of strain on her uterine tissue,” said the doctor.
“I examined the woman after this alleged incident and could not find any baby. The situation left us to believe that the worm had been acting like a baby.”
The superstitious Mbizi blames her misfortune on witchcraft. She cites a recent confrontation with a neighbour who owes her US$150.
“I think my neighbour bewitched me,” she said.
After giving birth to the worm, she said, she was advised by friends to “put coarse salt on it so that I’m not cursed again”.
She put the worm in a plastic container.
“I put salt on the worm and it shrinked, almost dissolving into liquid form. As you can see, there is some blood in the residue,” she said, holding the plastic container.
A truck driver from New Jersey, whose mother was a midwife, said that he has delivered his third baby on the side of a Texas interstate.
Michael Hawthorne, a driver for NFI Industries, said that he pulled over to check his load on a secluded stretch of road about 75 miles northwest of Dallas March 27 when Jack Smith ran over to him from a parked car and told him his wife, Tammy, was in labor and his cellphone had no service in the area.
“I went ahead, got my bottle of water, gloves and birth kit and took it to the car,” he said.
Hawthorne, whose mother and grandmother were midwives, said he started carrying a “birth kit” in his truck after helping two other couples deliver roadside babies during the past 13 years.
The truck driver said the healthy baby boy was born just as emergency responders arrived.
“The state police showed up. Meanwhile I am trying to keep the mother calmed. The mother gave birth. I cleaned it up what I could, wrapped the baby in a towel,” he said.
Sidney Brown, chief executive officer of NFI, said the company is nominating Hawthorne for a third Highway Angel Award, an award given by the Truckload Carriers Association to truck drivers who display heroism on the road.
“Mike is an extraordinary individual and we’re proud to have him as part of the NFI family,” Brown said.
Katie Thacker, who was nine months pregnant, would have thought getting to the hospital would be the biggest challenge during the the wintry storm pounding the Pacific Northwest.
It turns out that was the easy part.
It was after they arrived at St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma early Wednesday morning that Katie, her nurses and midwife got stuck in an elevator.
“I was in such hard labor that I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’” Katie said Wednesday afternoon.
Her husband Luke was waiting to greet her on the 14th floor.
Katie never made it.
The elevator was trapped between the 12th and 14th floors.
“I don’t think she was in the elevator more than 10 or 20 minutes and I heard my son cry,” Luke said.
Katie gave birth to a healthy baby boy in the elevator.
It took about two more hours to get the elevator doors open, but the actual elevator was still stuck between floors, so Luke crawled down so he could cut the umbilical cord and see his baby boy.
Their new son earned the nickname Blake “The Snowflake” “Otis” Thacker (Otis is the name of a well-known elevator company, although they were not stuck in an Otis elevator).
“It’s really not going to stick, I hope,” Katie said of the nickname.
A man in Bihar, India, imposed a fine of Rs25,000 ($500USD) on his wife for giving birth to a female child, forcing the local administration to intervene.
Ironically, Nargis, a girl born on Monday in a village in the neighbouring state of Uttar Pradesh, was welcomed as the world’s seven billionth baby.
Administrators said they had to personally intervene into the matter after Mohammad Manzoor, a resident from Muslim-dominated Purnea district in Bihar, drove out his 30-year-old wife Shahnaz from his house saying she would be allowed back in the house only when she pays the penalty amount.
According to officials in the area, Manzoor even declared the fine would be doubled if she gave birth to another baby girl while categorically stating, “Girls don’t matter and this addition is a load.”
Left with no option, the woman lodged a complaint with the local district administration seeking immediate help.
“I commanded much respect from my in-laws earlier but soon after the birth of my daughter, their attitude (towards me) changed radically,” she said in her petition.
“If giving birth to a baby girl is a punishable offence, then by the same standard, I should have been rewarded for producing two sons earlier,” she said.
Finding the case quite sensitive in nature, the administration hurriedly transferred the case to the Family Disputes Redressal Cell which served notice on the husband and was finally able to sort out the family dispute after much effort.
“We really had a very tough time convincing the man but the good thing was that we were able to save the family from getting disintegrated,” said Dilip Kumar Deepak and Swati Vaishnatri, members of the cell who counselled the man.
Convinced by their counselling, both agreed to live together while Shahnaz decided to withdraw the case against her husband.
