An Indian mother has given birth to conjoined twins who have two sets of hands but share one pair of legs. The twins -a boy and girl also share nearly every vital organ. Their mother, Shivrajo Devi, 24, gave birth at a private clinic in a village in Buxar, Bihar, eastern India, on Wednesday evening.
However their condition soon began to deteriorate and they were moved to Sadar Hospital in the city where medics gave them preliminary treatment in neo-natal intensive care unit. Once their condition stabilised, doctors sent the twins to a bigger hospital three hours way.
But their devastated parents have now been told any further treatment will need to take place in Delhi. Unable to afford travel or the high cost of medical treatment, the couple say they have been forced to simply take the babies home.
