Trauma during pregnancy is a leading cause of maternal mortality and morbidity. Physical injuries affect about 8% of pregnancies, potentially leading to the mother’s or fetus’s death.

The vast majority of such trauma is categorized as “minor” yet severe enough to induce pre-term labor, placental abruption, uterine rupture, and fetal loss.

Every pregnant trauma patient must undergo a thorough physical examination while recognizing the physiological and anatomical changes during pregnancy.

In reality, most pregnant trauma patients in the first trimester treat their condition as if pregnancy-related changes are non-existent.

Depending on the nature of the trauma, the emotional impact can also be significant to the fetus’s development.

In April 2020, a pregnant woman in Queensland, Australia, was kidnapped by a group of people who mistakenly identified her as a person who stole their drugs.

During the ordeal, the woman had no choice but to run along with the kidnappers to evade the police and, at one point, jump over a fence.

Four months later, she prematurely gave birth to a daughter whose life lasted only for a few moments.


10 /10 Brain Hemorrhage

Jorgia Forbes was three months pregnant in April 2020 when a group of people attacked and kidnapped her. The captors confused her with another person who allegedly stole their illegal drugs.

Forbes maintains that all the physiological and emotional trauma she experienced during the episode injured her fetus. Forbes had been held captive for about 9 hours before the police came to the rescue.

Her baby daughter, Hope, was born prematurely in August and died soon after from a brain hemorrhage.

9 /10 No Chance Of Survival

At some points when Forbes was kidnapped, she was dragged over fences and attempted to escape by jumping out of a moving vehicle.

She survived in the end, but all the pains and terrors she felt throughout the ordeal inflicted irrecoverable harm to her unborn baby.

Forbes gave birth to an already injured infant; the doctors revealed the daughter was suffering from internal bleeding in the head and that she had very little chance of survival.

The only way to keep the daughter alive was to permanently keep her attached to a life-supporting machine.


8 /10 Turning Blue And Died

From when Hope was born, Forbes held her daughter pretty much all her short life.

In an interview with the Daily Mail Australia, the mother said she kept Hope in her arms until the moment the baby turned blue and took the last breath.

Considering how Forbes underwent physical torture during the kidnapping, it would have been a miracle if her daughter had been born without any issues.

Forbes’ pregnant body was forced to endure overly-demanding physical distress, rendering her fetus severely injured.

7 /10 A Marijuana Purchase

Everything started to go wrong when she helped an acquaintance named Bodie Collins move to a new place at the Aloha Apartments in Surfers Paradise, Queensland.

He had been evicted from his previous home, and she knew him from a marijuana purchase. Collins called her the following night and asked if they could meet.

There didn’t seem to be anything suspicious about the request, so Forbes accepted the invitation. She went to meet the man she had just helped find a home.

6 /10 Hidden Assailant

As Forbes went downstairs, someone suddenly came out of a hiding place and held a knife to her throat. The man was later identified as Pаtutаhorа Hаkаriа.

She still had no idea what was happening until moments later when he dragged her across the street and forced her to get in a car.

Collins had been waiting in the backseat, and Zakaria and his girlfriend, Grace Edmonds, were in the front. At this point, Forbes realized she had just become a kidnapping victim.

5 /10 Escape Attempt

The first thing that crossed her mind was jumping out of the car to escape. She did manage to open the door and rolled out. Her priority at the moment was to save her life.

However, the escape attempt was futile as the trio dragged her back into the vehicle.

The good thing was that rolling out of the vehicle and making her kidnappers step out of the car created enough commotion to attract the onlookers’ attention. Some of them called the police.

4 /10 Physical Distress

When Forbes jumped out, she reckoned the car was pulling away at around 70kph. The attempt must have already caused some bruises and probably injured her three-month-old fetus.

She was taken to Collin’s new apartment. Forbes knew the place because she had helped him secure the accommodation. Forbes was drugged, restrained, and accused of stealing drugs from the kidnappers.

The police came just as they gave her death threats. The sirens prompted the kidnappers to take her to yet another hiding place.

3 /10 Over Fences

A police chase ensued. As the kidnappers tried to evade the authorities, they made Forbes jump over fences and cramped her into a vehicle.

She could hear police sirens and dogs behind. The four ended up in the bushes, running around apartment buildings, and going through alleyways.

It went on until midnight when they finally arrived on foot at a property.

To get inside, the kidnappers made Forbes climb over a concrete wall. Forbes said she could still hear police sirens and see their flashlights.


2 /10 Scorching Hot Shower

On the property, Collins forced Forbes to undress and take a scorching hot shower. Collins thought the sniffer dogs were hunting for her scent so that the shower would eliminate her traces.

Forbes realized she was bleeding and had bruises all over her body. Collins couldn’t care less about the injuries, and he just scrubbed the wounds.

Once again, Forbes was offered drugs, and she took them to ease the pain. The next thing she knew was the arrival of the police at around 6:30 am.


1 /10 Lenient Punishment

Later, the police found their hiding place using CCTV, sniffer dogs, and drones. The police arrested the trio. In July 2021, the case was tried at Brisbane District Court.

Bodie Collins was found guilty and sentenced to three years in prison. Pаtutаhorа Hаkаriа received five years sentence, whereas Grace Edmond was awarded three years imprisonment.

The proceeding judge said all the sufferings Forbes had to go through were motivated by a false accusation that she had stolen drugs and money from the kidnappers.
