Baby Born in China 4 Years After His Parents Die in Car Accident

A Chinese baby boy was born four years after his parents died in a car crash. The infant was carried to term and delivered using the deceased couple’s fertilized embryos via a surrogate mother from Laos, according to The Beijing News via South China Morning Post.

Shen Jie and his wife Liu Xi were reportedly undergoing fertility treatment when they died in a car accident in Yixing, Jiangsu province, China in March 2013.
