Successful surgery removes ‘extra legs’ from baby


A baby girl born with four legs and two spines is now healthy after undergoing risky surgery at a hospital near Chicago.

Ten-month-old Dominique was born in the Ivory Coast with a rare condition whereby she had the remnants of a not-fully-developed conjoined twin still attached to her.

Doctors have now removed the two extra legs and a second spine that protruded from her back and say she should be able to lead a normal life.
