So horrible! Expectant mother Eva Casara, 17, was shot and robbed in a Chicago suburb on Christmas Day. Her assailants left her bleeding on the sidewalk without a chance of survival, but her unborn baby was able to be delivered alive. The very premature newborn continues to fight for her life.
Eva Casara, 17, was about 25 weeks pregnant when she was shot and left for dead by muggers in Dolton, Ill. on Dec. 25. Police found the teen barely alive, bleeding in the snow with a horrific gunshot wound to the head and transported her to a nearby hospital, where doctors were able to keep her on life support long enough to deliver her baby successfully: a little girl weighing only 1 1/2 pounds.
