A baby boy in India has been born with the head and arms of his parasitic twin attached to his tiny body. The unnamed tot was born naturally, but when he came out he had the extra limbs hanging from his chest down to torso.
Although he is fully formed, his twin is missing genital and legs, attached to his body.
Both the babies have separate heart and lungs but are sharing the same liver and most of the alimentary system and blood supply.
Doctors believe the chances of detaching the parasitic twin is high but admit the surgery will be lengthy and complicated.
