Baby Gives 'Birth' To His Twin Brother
A two-year-old boy in China has given 'birth' to his twin brother.
Xiao Feng was taken to a hospital in China after his stomach became enlarged and was having difficulty breathing.
What followed next shocked doctors.
After X-Rays and MRI scans, doctors found that the boy was carrying an undeveloped foetus inside his stomach.
The boy was rushed to emergency surgery where he "gave birth" to the dead foetus.
His twins body had grown to 20cm wide and developed toes, fingers and even a spine - taking up two thirds of the boy's stomach.
It's an extremely rare case of conjoined twins where the fertilised egg fails to separate completely.
