Unbelievable! Shock as Woman Gives Birth to ‘Mermaid’ Baby | Photos

Doctors were left in serious shock after a 23-year-old Indian mother gave birth to a real life ‘mermaid’ whose gender is impossible to be determined.

The woman gave birth to a real life “mermaid baby” but tragically lost it just four hours later, The Sun UK has reported.

Muskura Bibi had given its natural birth on Wednesday morning at the government-run Chittaranjan Deva Sadan Hospital in Kolkata, India.

The baby born with fused legs was born with a rare condition known as ‘Mermaid Syndrome’ or Sirenomelia. It was the second such case in the country and fifth in the world.

Dr Sudip Saha, child specialist at the hospital said:

“I had never seen such a baby before. It is the first case of Sirenomelia in the state and second in the country.

The baby had normal formation in upper part of the body but below the waist its legs were fused together. The lower part was not developed completely.

The parents are a labour couple and had not sought proper medication during pregnancy due to lack of money.

Due to lack of proper nutrition and improper blood circulation to the baby from mother can create this kind of abnormality in foetus. Unfortunately such babies do not survive.
