A pregnant Mexican woman was fatally shot after she tried to deliver a fetus, police said.
A spokeswoman for the state police in Mexico City said on Twitter that the woman, whose name has not been released, was shot Tuesday while trying a “self-rescue operation” in her home near the border with the United States.
She died at a hospital.
Police said the woman was found by a resident and taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The Mexican state police said in a statement that the fetus was found alive and healthy.
The spokeswoman declined to say how many fetuses had been delivered.
