Gunshot Baby in Burkina Faso Born Healthy
Fourteen people were killed and hundreds were wounded during an attempt to overthrow the government of Burkina Faso in September.
One of those wounded was Safiatou Ouedraogo. She was days away from giving birth, and she was shot in the stomach.
Ouedraogo was washing her clothes when she was shot.
"I heard some loud noises, and I thought it was just kids playing. Next thing I know something hit my stomach. I stood up, but nothing fell off my laps. I looked to the ground to check, but I saw nothing there either, so I looked at my stomach and realized that whatever hit me had gone deep into my stomach."
She was immediately brought to a Catholic Church hospital in the capital, Ouagadougou. The bullet hit the baby.
She was cared for by Dr. Aicha Sana and her colleagues.
"When she arrived here, she was not in labor and she was also conscious. When we did some exams we saw that the bullet had crossed through the uterus. Since she was not in labor we decided to do a C-section to deliver the baby."
The baby was not seriously hurt. Once she was out of the womb, she started crying.
The baby girl has been named Boinzimwende. It means "God is above all" in the Mossi language.

Trembling seized them there, pain like that of a woman in labor.

其中一位特殊的伤者名叫Safiatou Ouedraogo 。当时还有几日即将临盆的她不幸被子弹击中了腹部 。
“当时，我听到一阵骚动，还以为是孩子们在嬉戏打闹 。紧接着，好像有什么东西击中了我的腹部 。我站了起来，奇怪的是腿上什么东西都没有 。我四周查看，也没发现什么东西 。当我不经意看到腹部的血迹时才意识到腹部中枪了 。”
拉奥果当即被送到了首都瓦加杜古市的天主教会医院 。经检查，子弹已经射中了腹中的胎儿 。
“她刚被送来的时候还没到分娩期，而且神志清醒 。检查显示，子弹已经射穿了子宫，由于未到临产期，我们决定通过剖腹产将胎儿取出 。”
所幸胎儿的伤势并不严重 。刚从妈妈的肚子里取出来，婴儿便开始啼哭 。
因这次奇迹般的经历，孩子被取名为Boinzimwende 。Boinzimwende在莫西语中寓意着：上帝高于一切 。
