Baby Born With Four Legs And Three Hands!

Sat Jul 05, 2003 6:56 am

An infant born with four legs, three hands, three kidneys and an abnormal liver to a rural Zambian woman two weeks ago, is pictured in Lusaka, July 2, 2003. Doctors at Zambia's main Lusaka University Teaching Hospital said July 3, 2003 the babies deformities were caused by incomplete growth of another fetus and multiplication of cells. They said the baby, whose is yet to be named, would be operated upon and is likely to lead a normal life. Picture taken July 2. REUTERS/Salim Henry

Wow! Just think though, if they were to leave him as is, he'd (or she'd?) be unbeatable playing in a band. With that many appendages, he could probably BE the entire band! He could call himself, "The Octopus". (I know folks, UTTERLY tasteless, I'll probably go to Hell for posting this! Just couldn't resist!) Big grin

This should be a warning to KROC and Matt D - never try and procreate together.

Reading your guys' comments really turns me sick. Can you imagine what kind of problems that child will face in the future? It will suffer not only from being disabled alone, but also from being made fun of by people like you. Would you make the same kind of fun about your own child if it was born disabled?
Some poeple may be disabled physically, but I think it's much worse to be 'disabled' by a low IQ.

If there was a disrespected user list, you would find yourself there definitely.

Udo, you could'nt have said it better, and you're in my respected users list for that. May God have mercy.

Knock it off guys.

This kid has a hard life ahead, assuming that it survives all of the operations that are going to be comming.

Just being born in that part of the world is bad enough.

The article states that the doctors feel post-surgery the child will lead a normal life.

That is assuming the surgery works and there aren't any complications.

I think the story oversimplified what that kid will be facing.

I'm sure the kid and its parents are absolutly mortified that people on a website about aircraft are making jokes. Don't be ridiculous - it's funny.

May God have mercy.

What are you talking about Airmale? If God had mercy he wouldn't have created this kid like he did. Furthermore he might want to consider saving the hundreds of kids who die EACH DAY in the same region as this kid was born.

Reading the tag line i thought it was a very small horse.
Just hope all the ops are a success.but on the flipside,whilst i may not laugh at it whats been written, can appreciate the gallows hunour out there. It is an inbuilt reaction in most countires that jhave good quality humour, and i wont name those that are renown for the lack of it........

Life is simple, people make it complicated. Need I say more???


Anyway, back to the topic, I don't know why I thought of this but it reminded me of Zack Gowen's wrestling debut last thursday night. He did most of the match on one leg and was more impressive than alot of the wrestlers out there. Goes to show you, even if the baby doesn't have the most normal of bodies, they can STILL lead the most normal of lives,


Cheers

Here is a pasting forom an article shortly after my birth:

"ROCHESTER, N.Y. - A baby has been born with an extremely flexible spine. Doctors say that by the time the boy reaches the age of nine, he will be able to orally please himself. Parents turned down corrective surrgery becuase the baby is so ugly, he will probably need such an ability."

Strangely enough, it sort of looks a little natural. I mean, the limbs are all in the right places. Sort of like when people have six digits on one hand or foot. It looks natural, and you have to look a second time before you realize that there are six digits.

Go to the Kunstkammer in St. Petersburg. Czar Peter the Great liked this kind of stuff, so he put misshaped foetus in alcohol to conserve them. Compared to them, this Zambian kid is nothing.

Well those surgeons in Singpaore managed to separate those two iranian twins joined at the head - for sure they can do something about this little girl.
