Surgery of six-legged baby successful, extra limbs removed

Doctors on Thursday successfully operated on the six-legged baby boy in Karachi, removing the extra limbs from the body. A team of five experienced doctors fought to save the life of the infant born with six legs because of a rare genetic condition. Jamal Raza, head of NICH, said the extra limbs were separated after surgery, adding that the limbs were result of a genetic disease which would affect only one in a million or more babies.
He said a confirmation on the baby’s condition could not be given until 48 hours. “It was strange that apparently an abnormal baby with six legs was as normal as other children,” he said. Imran Shaikh, the baby’s father, was thrilled. “It is great news for us. What the parents want is to see their kids healthy and strong. We pray his life remains normal and joyful,” he told reporters.
