Pakistani doctors are doing all they can to keep a baby boy alive who was born with a parasitic twin attached to his abdomen, resulting in 8 legs.

According to The Sun, parasitic twins form when twin embryos fail to fully separate in the womb.  This is incredibly rare and occurs in about one in 100,000 births.

There was another case like this in India in 2005. A young girl named Lakshmi was born with 8 limbs. After surgery she is living a happy life. I hope the same happens for this sweet little boy.  This is another reminder to count your blessings.
