Phuket Gazette Queer News: Woman delivers egg-straordinary baby | Thaiger

PHUKET: A woman in Nakhon Sri Thammarat province claims to have given birth to an egg.

Sopharat Phantharak, 36, from Village 5 in Mokhlan Subdistrict, has placed the miraculous object on a pedestal lined with white cloth and is inviting local villagers to come and pay their respects to it.

Mrs Sopharat, who is already a mother of four, claims that before the miraculous nativity she had a strange dream in which an angel gave her the egg, as well as the white cloth.

Now, local villagers are flocking to her house to see the miracle, with many of them prostrating themselves in front of the egg, which looks just like that of a chicken. Mrs Sopharat has also placed a silver tray next to the object for villagers to leave money and gain merit, in accordance with Thai tradition.

Police officers are investigating Mrs Sopharat to see if they can charge her with fraud.

Kitti Rattanasombat, the director of Tha Sala Hospital, told Thai national newspaper Khao Sod that “normal people don’t give birth to eggs”.

Mr Kitti added that women were usually pregnant for nine months before giving birth to a baby.

He admitted that abnormal births were possible, but insisted that giving birth to a “duck egg, chicken egg or reptile egg” was something that does not happen.

This was more likely to be due to someone making up stories to get attention, he said.

Mr Kitti said Mrs Sopharat had previously been to the hospital complaining of stomach pains and writhing intestines, and that at the end of last year she had been checked for pregnancy.

She had also been to the hospital a week earlier complaining of stomach pains, but no trace of pregnancy was found.

Superintendent Suthep Kosakul of Tha Sala Police Station said officers had examined the egg and confirmed it was a chicken egg with “nothing special” about it.

“I suspect the whole household isn’t normal,” said Col Suthep. “They say she gave birth to an egg. Whether this constitutes fraud or not, it’s too early to say.”

Khao Sod confirmed that most villagers who saw the egg did not believe it was the result of Mrs Sopharat giving birth. Some said that if the object had been a lump of flesh of some sort, they might have believed it – but not a chicken egg.
