Medical experts believe that a rare genetic condition has resulted in the birth of a baby with six legs in the Pakistani city of Karachi. According to Jamal Raza, who is the director of the city's National Institute of the Child Health, the baby boy was born earlier this month to the wife of an X-ray technician named Imran Shaikh. "It is not one baby actually. They are two, one of them is premature," said Raza.
A statement from the provincial health department said "The doctors are examining the infant to plan for necessary treatment to save the baby's life and ensure he lives a normal life."
