Brain-Dead Woman Gives Birth to Twins

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.
