Mum Terrified After Spotting 'Demon Child' In Baby Scan

A mum has revealed how her daughter looked "demonic" in her baby scan - comparing the appearance to that of Salad Fingers, an animated web series created by David Firth in 2004.

Jade Boyland had hoped for the traditional shot of the baby's side profile to share with friends and family during her 20-week scan.

But she was horrified when she saw what appeared to be a tiny hunched figure with enormous eyes and long claw-like fingers - just like the green cartoon character Salad Fingers.

The 28-year-old said the sonographer burst out laughing at the bizarre image and then quickly explained that everything appeared fine.

Reassured that everything was as it should be, Jade began jokingly referring to her daughter as her "demon child."

Now at seven-years-old, Jade adds that her daughter, Lydia, lives up to the nickname due to her "sassy" personality.

Retelling her scan story Jade says:

"Jade, from Chard, Somerset, said: "She looked like Salad Fingers [with] big eyes and long fingers.

"The woman doing the scan started laughing.

"It did scare me at first, I didn't know if it was normal.

"I asked 'what is it? because it doesn't look right'. She just explained that she was facing outwards, so I called her 'the demon child'."

Continuing, Jade adds: "She was facing outwards the whole time, we couldn't get her to turn around.

"I tried to get her to move by getting up, going for a wee but nothing worked, she wouldn't budge.

"I got a fright to begin with but I found it funny after. Friends and family laughed when they saw the scan. I don't think many had seen one like that.

"[After sharing it in a Facebook group] I saw comments online about the scan looking like Salad Fingers."

Jade shared the image of her scan to a Facebook group adding that it "freaked [her] out."

Stunned social media users flocked to the post and left light-hearted comments.

One wrote: "I'm having nightmares tonight."

Another commented: "That is NOT what you want to see!! So pleased you didn't give birth to that image!!"

"Omg is that claws??" Added a third.

One concerned user asked if she was ok, and Jade replied: "Yes she’s nearly seven now. She’s the devil though, should have known from the scan."
