A woman from Mexico City complained of having stomach pains and explained to doctors that her ‘baby’ was not moving.
The Daily Mail UK reports Gloria C,37, was admitted to Rubén Leñero hospital in Mexico City after complaining of having stomach pains. Doctors transferred Gloria to the Women’s Hospital when they discovered her ‘baby’ did not have a heartbeat and performed emergency surgery.
During her operation, surgeons discovered that Gloria had one pound of marijuana wrapped in duct tape in her vagina and abdomen.
Lourdes Yates, the doctor who performed the operation, reported the findings to the Public Ministry. Gloria was detained and taken to court for ‘crimes against health’.

A judge released Gloria based on an argument that her detention was not legal and she was allowed to walk free. Her case will be investigated by officials from the State Prosecutor’s Office. Gloria has a previous record for the same crime in 2010 and 2015.
Gloria told police she’s from the Mexican state of Ixtapaluca but she refused to reveal the location of her drug dealers.
