A PREGNANT woman has lost her baby after being seriously assaulted in Dublin over the weekend.
The woman, who is in her thirties, was attacked on Dame Street in the city centre at some point between the hours of 4am and 5am this past Sunday, April 25th.
She was later rushed to hospital with serious injuries but has since lost her unborn child.
The woman remains in hospital where she is being treated for her injuries.
According to the Irish Mirror, she was attacked by someone she knows.
An unnamed source told the newspaper: "It was a sickening attack, one of the worst imaginable.
