WHEN Victoria Martindale-Wood was born weighing just 14 ounces, doctors thought she couldn't possibly survive.
Her mother Tracy gave birth to her at just 24 weeks - and tiny Victoria measured just nine inches.
Weighing less than a pound, Victoria was believed to be the second smallest baby ever to be born in the UK.
Her survival was seen as not only miraculous because of her tiny size - but she truly beat all the odds after surviving a car crash whilst she was still in her motherís womb.
Now after celebrating her fourth birthday, Victoria is about to start school next month - even though her mother struggled to find a school uniform small enough for her. [download copy]
