A pregnant woman who was declared dead after suffering a brain aneurysm has given birth to twins after her body was kept alive for a month on a respirator.
Christine Bolden collapsed on March 1 while walking in Michigan, Detroit, with her boyfriend and three-year-old son.
Five days later she was pronounced brain-dead by doctors and an obituary for the 26-year-old lists her date of death as March 6.
But almost a month later she has given birth to twins after being kept on life support in order to save her unborn children.
Miss Bolden, who also has an 11-year-old son, gave birth to Nicholas and Alexander – names she had chosen before her collapse – on April 5 after a 25-week pregnancy.
Her life support was turned off shortly afterwards.
