(Scroll down for video) A baby shocked her parents when she was born with three legs.
Thousands of babies are born around the world every day. While most babies are born healthy some babies are not so lucky.
One baby girl in China was born with a weird-looking bulge, which turned out to be an extra leg. The third leg is smaller than the other two and is hanging limply from the back of her right leg.
The mother in Xingtai, Hebei Province, North China, felt that she could not take care of this disfigured baby.
The mother took the three-legged baby to a local orphanage so she can be taken care of by people who are less emotionally affected by the child’s medical issues. However, soon after she began missing her helpless baby and she felt tormented by guilt. The new mom went to the orphanage and retrieved her baby.
Now, the young couple is desperately seeking to raise money to help “fix” their baby. They are seeking donations to pay for urgent medical treatment so their daughter can lead a normal life.
Doctors said that the additional limb can be removed, but surgery cannot be performed before the baby is at least six-months-old.
The video below is of another child, who was also born with three legs.
