Man Aged 71 Diagnosed As Pregnant

A 71-YEAR-OLD grandfather treated in a US hospital was told he was getting abdominal pains because he was pregnant.

Curry General Hospital in Gold Beach, Oregon, told John Grady Pippen: "Based on your visit today, we know you are pregnant."

The retired mechanic and logger, a granddad, was also prescribed pain pills.

The hospital said an errant keystroke had prompted their computer to spit out wrong instructions.
