LONGMONT, Colo. — 911 tapes have been released in the stabbing of a pregnant Colorado woman whose baby was removed from her womb by a stranger.

KDVR reports the 26-year-old victim made the 911 call after she was stabbed by another woman while answering a Craigslist ad for baby clothes.

On the recording, she could be heard groggily telling a dispatcher the suspect, Dynel Lane, had cut her with a knife.

The victim, who has not been identified, can be heard barely conscious describing what happened.

“She cut me. … I’m pregnant,” the woman said from the basement of suspect’s home.

A relative of the suspect also said Thursday that Lane lost her own child more than a decade ago when he accidentally drowned.

Aaron Cruz, the boy’s paternal grandfather, says Lane’s son was 19 months old when he drowned in a shallow pond at her parents’ home in Pueblo. Investigators ruled the 2002 death an accident.

Cruz says Lane and her now-ex-husband were devastated by the child’s death. But he says Lane seemed to be a good mother and he saw no indication she would be violent.

The victim, who was seven months pregnant, is expected to survive, but her unborn baby died.
