8-year-old UK bionic girl, Olivia Farnsworth has the only known case of 'Chromosome 6 Deletion,' where she does not feel pain, fear, hunger or the need to sleep

In 2016, a 7-year-old girl was hit by a car at speed and dragged down a road in Yorkshire, England. She got up, walked away, and showed no sign of pain. Due to a rare chromosome condition, Olivia Farnsworth, aka "The Bionic Girl", doesn't feel pain, hunger, or the need to sleep.

Full-time single mum Ms Trepak said she knew she was different to her other children, especially when she stopped napping during the day at nine-months-old.

She did not sleep and would make up excuses not to go to bed and the first time she ever yawned, her mum recalled, was when she started school.

Ms Trepak said: ”As a baby I always said she was made of steel as she never cried.

”I never thought she'd feel no pain, it was just a joke.

"I remember when she was at nursery, once day the rang me and told me she'd fallen and her bottom teeth had gone through her bottom lip.

"She had to have plastic surgery and when the surgeon was examining her, he was pulling her lip and she wasn't even flinching.

"He said to me, there's something not right about her."

Ms Trepak, also mum to Ella-Mae, 12, Bradlee, 10, Archie, six and four-year-old Poppy, said: "She had bad colic and her hair didn't grow. She had no hair until she was about four-and-a-half. 

“People called her a boy all the time."

Olivia who is 'conditioned' to eat is a happy child at home but can suffer from violent outbursts, her mum said.

She said: ”She doesn't let any of this affect her - because for her, she's normal. She's never experienced pain, or hunger, or tiredness.
