Horrific Car Accident

In 1999, while Linda was driving, she was hit by a car whose driver was drunk. 

That was a severe accident. She was severely injured and had multiple bone cracks. 

She was seven months pregnant at that time. Her pelvis was also crushed, which hit her unborn baby's head in the uterus. 

Due to this, her unborn baby went into a coma. The chance of the death of the baby was high if she took an anesthetic for leg surgery. 

But she refused to do so to protect her baby. Linda gave birth to her son Sergio seven weeks before her actual date. 

It was a miracle, but both mother and son then started to recover. Sergio is 21 years now and fit and healthy.
