Doctors strive to save the baby girl’s life
A four-legged girl was born in one of Indonesian villages in Central Java. As the Jakarta newspaper Media Indonesia reported on Wednesday, the girl was the third child in a peasant family. She was born with several abnormalities; two pairs of legs that grew together were not the only remarkable thing about the girl.
In addition to her accreted legs, the girl has two spines and the duplicates of all other organs in the lower part of her body. To crown it all, her heart is deformed, which causes the lack of oxygen in her blood, despite normal lungs. The child is very weak, although the girl is still alive owing to intravenous feeding.
RIA Novosti reported that doctors plan to perform correcting operations on the girl. The surgery will take several stages. However, doctors need to help the girl to get better physically first. The management of the hospital, in which the girl stays, is not going to make the girl’s parents pay for the operations. There will be a special account opened in one of Indonesian banks to collect the funds for saving the girl's life.
