A Chinese baby born with three legs due to an extremely rare fault in pregnancy has had the extra limb removed.

Surgeons revealed the extra leg didn’t belong to the boy. It was the remnants of his partially formed, parasitic twin.

Parasitic twins arise when identical twins fail to separate, and the condition occurs in around one in a million live births.

Surgery lasted ten hours; surgeons said it was a success according to the Daily Mail online.
