Girl Born Without Blood Called 'Medical Miracle'

Six-month-old British baby Olivia Norton is being called "a medical miracle" for surviving after being born with virtually no blood.  Parentdish.co.uk reports:

The six-month-old little girl was born completely white because she had such a low count of haemoglobin - the chemical which carries oxygen in red blood cells - that it could not officially be classed as 'blood'.

She was given less than two hours to live but survived thanks to emergency transfusions which transformed her into a glowing healthy pink colour.

Olivia's mum Louise Bearman, 31, a barrister's clerk, told of her shock at giving birth to a 'ghost white' baby whose condition was so rare she will now feature in medical text books.
