Must read

Doctors are battling to save the life of a miracle baby born with two faces but only one body.

The child, who was reportedly born on August 22, 2014, is suffering from an extremely rare condition called craniofacial duplication.

The handicap is said to affect just one in 100,000 babies and only 36 cases in the world are believed to have ever been recorded. None have so far survived.

A video of the newborn, who was born at the Civil Hospital of Khatav, India, shows the child with two mouths, two noses and four eyes but only one body.

The child, whose name is unknown is said to be in a very serious condition.

A doctor at the hospital, Dr Suresh Sirsat, told RT News: This baby is a serious case now and our pediatric is trying to save her life. Usually, the surviving chances of the babies are very low, but we are trying our best.’

The birth mirrors a recent case in Australia where conjoined twins Faith and Hope were born with just one body. They died just three weeks later despite doctors efforts to save them.
