A lot of people gathered outside the hospital after baby girl was born with two torsos, four arms and four legs

Footage captured inside the hospital shows the severely deformed baby lying on a bed hooked up to machines before she died shortly after her birth.

Crowds queued outside the hospital in order to see the baby after news spread about her birth.

Mum Savita Devi said she was in shock after losing her newborn but added: “I think whatever happened it happened for good.

“If my baby lived on with these deformity, every day of her life would have been like death.”

Her husband Suresh Saw, a farmer, said: “We took care during the pregnancy.

“We were hoping to welcome an able-bodied baby.

“But destiny had different plans – this time it was a cruel one. We were gifted with a deformed baby.

” I didn’t know whether to be happy or feel sorry for the poor kid.

“God must have cursed us for some sin, we committed in our previous life.”

The baby was rushed to an intensive care unit after her condition started deteriorating.

Dr Mukesh Kumar, who helped with the delivery, said the child couldn’t be saved because it was not fully developed.

He said: “This is called congenital deformity.

“The fetus didn’t grow properly in the womb due some reasons. This was plagued by an extremely rare condition where a conjoined twin did not fully form.

“Instead of growing a separate body, the other undeveloped baby’s limbs absorbed into his as a result of polymelia.

“The rare disorder occurs in the womb when the cells form abnormally during embryonic development.”

This happened in Lakhisarai, Bihar, India.
