World News Daily Report claims:
An American woman has totally annihilated the former World Record for the most babies in a lone pregnancy by giving birth to seventeen babies over 29 hours last weekend at the Indianapolis Memorial Hospital.
I'm pretty sure this is just made up (or a hoax?). Can this be confirmed/denied?
The image in the news article shows an exhausted looking woman surrounded by 17 babies. Their motor skills are too advanced for babies born "last weekend". The woman also appears to be of a different ethnicity to the babies. (Although, there might be some explanation for this that I haven't thought of.)
It also seems at odds with how difficult it is to give multiple births; Wikipedia writes:
There have been a few sets of nonuplets (nine) in which a few babies were born alive, though none lived longer than a few days.
