Baby with 2 torsos, 4 legs and 4 arms dies shortly after birth in India

A video circulating online shows a baby girl born in India on June 23, with two torsos, four legs, and four arms. 

According to The Sun, the severely deformed child died shortly after her birth, though not before curious crowds flocked to the hospital in Bihar to catch a glimpse of her.

The child's mother, Savita Devi, said she was in shock over the death but added: "I think whatever happened it happened for good. If my baby lived on with these deformed, every day of his life would have been like death."

Her farmer husband said that despite taking every care during the pregnancy and hoping to welcome an able-bodied baby, "destiny had different plans – this time it was a cruel one."

He added, "We were gifted with a deformed baby. I didn’t know whether to be happy or feel sorry for the poor kid.

"God must have cursed us for some sin we committed in our previous life."
