The incident took place at the Santa Isabel maternity hospital in Aracaju in northeastern Brazil, the Daily Mail reported.

The 22-year-old mother -- who has three other children -- said later she knew something was wrong when she heard something crack. The team of five doctors had spent hours trying to deliver the baby.

"She went through a lot of suffering, it was hours and hours and a lot of pain and discomfort, with doctors pushing on her stomach, trying everything to make the baby come out," the woman's cousin told Brazil's Globo G1 website.

"Then at one point, she heard a loud noise and one of the doctors said, 'Marcos, are you crazyIJ'"

The mother asked what was happening but did not get an answer. She was rushed for an emergency surgery in which the headless body of the baby was removed.

The family will now sue the hospital for medical negligence.
