A Lagosian woman has reportedly been delivered of a baby with two heads – as seen on our cover photo. The baby was born on Tuesday, December 13th, in a Medical Specialist Hospital situated at Oshogbo Street, Ogudu, Lagos.
Staff and doctors at the hospital were left bewildered at the sight of the child, who was delivered around 6:30pm via an elective caesarean section.
The weird looking baby, has two heads, a neck, chest, two legs and two hands.
According to the nurses who helped deliver the child and other medics, scans had earlier revealed that the pregnant mother was expecting a set of twins, but a baby having two heads and one body was delivered instead.
One of the nurses in the delivery room at the hospital where the baby was born, said the hospital had prepared two cots for each of the twins but were left in shock when they saw that they were conjoined in one body.
“This is the first time I am seeing anything like this. I have watched it in movies but seeing it in real life was such an experience for me. Thankfully, the surgeon ensured that they survived.”
“As I speak to you, the mother doesn’t know the condition of the babies. She still believes and expects to carry her twins. We haven’t told her yet. Only her husband was brought into the theatre to see his children and he was the one who went with the doctors to LUTH,” said the nurse.
Reports say the mother now knows the state of her baby(ies) and has been devasted ever since the news was broken to her.
Wonders will never end.
