In what has been seen as a miracle, a two-headed baby girl has been delivered in a "miracle" birth in Bangladesh.
Crowd flock to hospital at the birth of a two headed miracle baby girl
The baby, who was born late yesterday, is now being treated for breathing difficulties after she was shifted to the intensive care unit of the country's largest hospital in Dhaka.
Her father, Jamal Mia, a farm labourer, described how he had been "awestruck" when he first saw his new baby.
Talking to AFP, Mia said:
"She has two fully developed heads. She is eating with two mouths and breathing with two noses," he said."Still, I thank Allah that she and the mother are now okay."
Jamal added that he was concerned about how he would manage to care for the baby if extra expenses were needed.
"I feel sad for her. She has been born to a poor man. I don't have money to even properly treat her mother," he said.
Abu Kawsar, owner of the Standard Hospital of Total Healthcare where the baby was born, said initial tests showed she only has one set of vital organs.
"The entire town poured into the clinic. There were thousands of people with some of them coming from the nearby villages," he said, adding, "It's good that the baby has been shifted to Dhaka. Otherwise, it would have been difficult for us to control the crowd."
