Platy still has babies inside her

Hey

My female sunset platy had around 6 fry 5 days ago unfortunately 4 of them somehow got eaten. The female platy however still has some large eyes inside her stomach. Does anyone know what's happening or if there's a chance the rest of the fry in side her are still alive?

The mother is in a 5 gallon tank which is well vegetated and is used as a breeding tank she is usually in a 75 gallon tank with many other fish.

Thanks guys

sometimes if a live bearer is mid drop and gets stressed she will wait a few days 2 deliver the rest. also, i know my female gups have like freckles in their gravid spot that can be seen all the time, this is amother possiblilty... or they could be the next batch of eggs developing into fry...
