Samuel Armas

This is quite amazing:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_Armas

During open-uterus, fetal surgery, the fetus' hand popped out of the womb and a picture was taken of the event. Urban legend says the fetus grabbed the surgeon's hand but this has been proven false.

Either way it's a moving photo and shows the advances in modern science and the fragility of life.

The photo is available on Michael Clancy's website (see bottom of the page). Be warned it is graphic.
