Pregnant woman fleeing Russians gives birth

London, March 12 : A pregnant woman photographed escaping from the wreckage of a hospital bombed by Russia has given birth to a daughter. The image of heavily-pregnant Mariana Vishegirskaya, her face bloodied as she descended rubble-strewn steps, was widely shared amid outrage at the attack which killed three people, BBC reported on Saturday.

The Russian embassy in the UK tweeted a conspiracy theory that Mariana was an actress and the aftermath of the attack had been staged, BBC reported. VP MR
