A baby has sparked disbelief in India after it was born with an extra pair of legs and arms.
The tot has been hailed a ‘miracle of nature’, and has even been compared to a reincarnated version of God.
Extraordinary pictures show the child – who was born weighing 6.5lbs – with an extra four limbs protruding from the stomach.
The baby was delivered at the Shahabad Community Health Centre over the weekend in Hardoi, a district in the north of India, in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
Mum Kareena, who didn’t disclose her surname, was raced to the hospital after experiencing labour pains on Saturday (July, 2) and gave birth soon after, Daily Star reports.
Despite the medical rarity, miraculously both the mother and child are said to be healthy and doing well.
After news spread across the area, reports say locals flocked to the hospital to see the multiple-limbed goddess first hand.
This isn’t the first time a baby in India has left crowds excited.
The child, whose gender is yet to be revealed, quickly became a local celebrity for its unique appearance and extra limbs.
Video footage showed the kid surrounded by fascinated residents as they took pictures of the child and their exposed organs.
The child could be seen resting in a basket full of colourful sheets placed on the mother’s lap as she sat upright in a hospital bed.
