Baby born with two heads die after doctors decide it was too difficult to operate on him [PHOTOS]

Yesterday a 20 year old girl gave birth to a baby with two heads leaving many doctors in shock.


Speaking to news men, Dr Jaiprakash Narayan at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College India said:
"A baby boy with two heads was born yesterday in a healthy state.

"The mother completed her pregnancy full term and was doing well post surgery but the baby suffered breathing issues."


Dr Jaiprakash deliberated whether to operate on the small baby but eventually decided it was too difficult. He added:
"The operation is possible in some cases of conjoined twins but here it was nearly impossible.
"Despite having two pairs of all of their internal organs they were all trapped in one body, with only one pair of arms and legs. You cannot separate such children."

The baby was kept in the intensive care unit but despite the risks and warnings by the hospital staff, the couple decided to leave and take the miracle baby home. The baby died after 32 hours, local reports say.
