Eight limbed boy celebrating after surgery to remove parasitic twin

These incredible pictures show the remarkable work of surgeons who removed a parasitic twin from a boy dubbed, ‘The Eight-Limbed Boy’.

Deepak Paswaan was taunted and called a ‘devil’ and ‘freak’ as he was born with a parasitic twin jutting from his stomach.

Born in Bihar, India, Deepak spent his young life carrying around the under-developed legs and arms of what would have been his twin in a normal pregnancy.

But last summer, top doctors at the Fortis Hospital Bangalore agreed to operate on Deepak for free, as his parents, Indu and Veeresh, couldn’t afford the whopping £50,000 it would have cost.

A team of six surgeons first cut away the extra limbs and then spent the final two hours sealing off the blood vessels Deepak shared with his twin.
