There are a lot of weird and wonderful things in this world and one of the latest ones to join us is a baby girl in Tonk, Rajasthan in India with four legs and three hands alongisde her twin brother.
Experts believe that the mother could have been expecting triplets but one pair were conjoined, although this hasn’t been confirmed or denied at the time of writing. I guess it makes more sense than this being the second coming of whoever though, which is what some people always tend to believe when an abnormal baby is born.
Doctors believe that the extra limbs and appendages should be able to be removed safely, with Dr Rohitesh Meena saying the following:
Raju gave birth naturally to the twins at around 2:46 am.
The male child is normal but the female is a case of conjoined twins.
She had a minor breathing issue. We put her on oxygen support and her vitals are stable now.
We will refer her to an advanced hospital in Jaipur for further treatment and paediatric surgery.
They had not gone for ultrasound. They were distressed after the birth of the baby girl.
It could be the first case where triplets are born naturally but one pair is conjoined.
Hopefully the baby is OK and will be able to lead a normal life. We’re all rooting for you buddy.
