Bizarre Pics: Man Born With FOUR LEGS Found In India
A young man born with four legs has used social media to appeal for doctors to amputate his two extra limbs. Arun Kumar, 22, was born with two extra legs growing from his lower back - one underdeveloped and the other permanently bent at the knee.
Arun, who lives in Uttar Pradesh, India, appealed through social media for medical help to remove his extra legs. He has two extra legs growing from his lower back, which affect his ability to move or walk properly.
One of the limbs is underdeveloped, while the other is permanently bent at the knee.
After living for 15 years without any kind of treatment, the 22-year-old launched an online plea for medial help to remove his additional limbs. He was delighted when a team of specialists at Fortis Hospital in Delhi responded to his request.
The team has now organised a series of tests to find out how his legs are attached and if he can be treated.
Arun said: "If I get an operation and doctors take off my two extra legs, then I can also live a normal life. I may be able to move and walk properly like others. When I go back to hospital, I will meet doctors. If they are willing to do an operation, then I'm ready."
Despite not being able to move his extra legs, Arun does have feeling in them and carrying the weight on his back is damaging his posture and ability to walk, Mirror.co.uk reports.
