Newborn baby has 12cm 'tail'


A baby in India born with a 12cm 'tail' has had it removed at just five days old.

The as yet unnamed child was born with a heteropagus conjoined twin, where his sibling was anatomically incomplete and had formed as a tail on his back.

He underwent a four-hour operation to remove the 350g growth, despite the fact keeping it could have given him a privileged life in India.
