Baby Girl In India, Born With Neither Arms Nor Legs


An Indian woman has given birth to a  baby girl, who was born without all four limbs due to a rare genetic disorder.

This condition has, however left doctors and family members baffled in India.

The 28 years old woman, from Sakla village of Sironj Tehsil in the Vidisha district yesterday, welcomed her baby, who was born with an autosomal recessive congenital disorder – Tetra-Amelia – which is characterised by the absence of all four limbs.

Footage shows a woman holding the baby which is missing both its arms and legs and is wrapped in a blanket.
