A baby boy was born with four arms and four legs in Baruipur. Locals are calling him, ‘God Baby’ and since his discovery, people have been reportedly crying on the streets and flocking to the hospital where he was born.
According to the U.K. based Mirror News, an unnamed relative of the child spoke on local TV and said:
“When he first came out we couldn’t believe it. The nurses said he was badly deformed but I could see that this was a sign from God. In fact, this is a miracle, its God’s baby. Indian God’s have extra limbs just like this.”
Chukka Rao, a resident of a neighboring village, told The Mirror:
“When we first heard about God Boy we were slightly sceptical. But we came to see because we were intrigued by all the news we were hearing from friends and others. When we eventually saw a pic of the child it was a wonder. This is truly the son of the Hindu God Brahma, who also has four arms and four legs.”
With all the excitement, the village is being overrun by some curious believers from all across the region. Local police are having trouble controlling these growing crowds as word gets out about a baby born with multiple limbs.
A police spokesman stated, “This is a freak baby and it is tragic, there is nothing Godly about him at all. But the crowds are going berserk and clamouring to see the child.” The officer added, “Hundreds are crying in the streets, hundreds of others are praying and setting up camp here. Some are even panicking and believe this is a sign of the end of the world. I have never seen anything like this in my whole career.”
The birth defect causing this baby boy to have four arms and legs, is said to be the result of the remains of the baby’s twin that became joined to him inside the womb.[Photo credit:Øyvind W]
