A WOMAN has given birth to a baby girl with four legs and three hands in Rajasthan, India.
Doctors believe the child was originally part of a set of triplets – two of which became conjoined during the pregnancy.

Mum Raju, 24, gave birth to the twins in a government-run hospital in Tonk in Rajasthan, India, on Friday night.
While the baby boy is healthy, the little girl was born with an extra set of legs and hands covering her entire chest and abdomen.
It’s thought that the extra limbs could be removed through surgery.
Dr Rohitesh Meena, the surgeon who delivered the babies, said: “Raju gave birth naturally to the twins at around 2:46 am.
“The male child is normal but the female is a case of conjoined twins.
“She had a minor breathing issue.
“We put her on oxygen support and her vitals are stable now.
“We will refer her to an advanced hospital in Jaipur for further treatment and paediatric surgery.
“The mother and the male child are stable.”
Raju and her husband, Badhulal Gurjar, a daily wage labourer, were expecting their first child.
The illiterate parents hadn’t gone for an ultrasound during the pregnancy and didn’t know Raju was carrying twins.
“They had not gone for an ultrasound.
