Girl, 7, doesn't know pain or hunger

A seven-year-old girl in the UK is living a tough life as she has never felt the pangs of hunger or any kind of pain or even fatigue.

Consequently, she can even manage to do without sleep and food for days.

According to a report in Oddity Central website, Olivia Farnsworth was "run over and dragged down the street by a car". However, she just walked away from the horrific incident with some small injuries on her toe and hip but no tears. 

All this because she suffers from a condition known as 'chromosome 6 deletion'. However, her doctors say that it is a rare phenomemon as she displays three symptoms in one go. The doctors have given her a nickname to match her special features - bionic girl.

The mother has a tough time trying to get Olivia to eat healthy food. She survived on bread and butter for a year. Currently, she survives mostly on chicken noodles. Olivia is not bothered about healthy food as she is not worried about going hungry or suffering from malnutrition or any kind of growing pains or fatigue.

However, despite her 'superman toughness', Olivia's mother feels she is not most loving among her four siblings.
