Mother, Niki Trepak, 32, from Huddersfield said the condition meant her daughter had ‘no sense of danger.’ She got run over and dragged down the street by a car and she didn’t complain, she said. She was dragged about ten car lengths down the road. It was horrendous, I don’t think it’s something I will ever get over. I was screaming and all my other children were screaming as she ran out. But Olivia was just like, ”What’s going on?”. She just got up and started walking back to me. Because of the impact she should have had severe injuries. She had a tyre mark on her chest. But her only injuries were she had no skin on her toe or her hip. The doctors think what saved her from injury was she didn’t tense up. The mother-of-five said the signs of Olivia’s condition started when she was just a few months old.   Ms Trepak said Olivia never cried as a baby and stopped sleeping in the day from the age of nine months. -dailymail.co.uk

She doesn’t feel hunger so I can’t threaten her like other children by saying if you don’t eat that you’ll not get this as she isn’t bothered. ‘She also once fell badly and ripped her lip off and didn’t say anything. She had to have major plastic surgery to correct it.’Olivia now takes medication to sleep and is generally a happy child but can suffer from violent outbursts
