So this will undoubtedly be the craziest thing you read all week, maybe even all month. A “pregnant” two-year-old boy “gave birth” in China.
Xiao Feng, from Huaxi, China, was brought to an area hospital after his stomach had become so distended that he began to suffer breathing issues. Doctors took x-rays and MRI scans and discovered that Feng was carrying the undeveloped fetus of his own twin inside his stomach. So, they rushed him to surgery.
The parasitic twin would have developed into a boy, but it had already grown so large that almost two thirds of his affected twin’s stomach was taken up, measuring 20 cm in width with a fully formed spine and limbs, including fingers and toes.
Xiao Feng survived the surgery, and the fetus was removed.
