A Colorado baby named Lake Annabelle who received partial in-womb surgery by a team of 43 doctors five months ago is doing well today.

Doctors used her mother's placenta as life support as they removed a cyst from the baby's lung. The cyst had to be removed before the baby's birth because it would interfere with her breathing once born.

Listen to doctors explain how they did the surgery and check out footage from the operation in the Associated Press video above.
