A baby girl was born in India with two torsos, four arms and four legs.
The severely deformed baby died shortly after her birth on Friday. Crowds queued outside the hospital in Lakhisarai, Bihar, in order to see the baby after news spread about her birth.
Mum Savita Devi said she was in shock after losing her newborn but added: “I think whatever happened it happened for good. If my baby lived on with these deformed, every day of his life would have been like death.”
According to the Sun, her husband Suresh Saw, a farmer, said: “We took every care during the pregnancy.We were hoping to welcome an able-bodied baby.But destiny had different plans – this time it was a cruel one. We were gifted with a deformed baby. I didn’t know whether to be happy or feel sorry for the poor kid.God must have cursed us for some sin, we committed in our previous life.”
DR MUKESH KUMAR, WHO HELPED WITH THE DELIVERY, SAID THE CHILD COULDN’T BE SAVED BECAUSE IT WAS NOT FULLY DEVELOPED AND CALLED IT CONGENITAL DEFORMITY.
