Baby girl born with three hands is worshipped as a god

This baby girl is being worshipped in India – because she was born with three hands.

The infant was born on November 2 to mother Radhika Sahu with a small additional arm and hand growing out of her chest.

She has quickly become the talk of her village in the Bilaspur district of Chhattisgarh, India – with some even worshipping the tot as a God.

Her concerned family reported the extra hand – a one-in-a-million anomaly – to their local health centre, and their daughter was examined and found to be perfectly healthy.

Dr. B.P. Singh, in charge of Chhattisgarh Institute of Medical Science (SIMS) has recommended an operation to remove the hand and allow the child to live a normal life.

    How on Earth can ANY population on Earth still be SO steeped in superstition and ignorance? Have the hand removed and give this poor kid a chance at a normal life.
