Parasitic Twin Found Inside A Toddler

Poor little guy!

Doctors in Peru say the boy in the pic above has a "parasitic twin" growing inside his poor little 3-year-old body.

Dr. Carlos Astocondor says the boy's partially formed twin weighs a pound and a half and is nine inches long. It has some hair on the cranium, eyes and some bones but he does NOT have a brain, heart, lungs and intestines.

With out those vital things it won't be able to live independently compete for parental love and attention, so whats the point? They plan to remove the parasite/brother later today.

Experts say this condition occurs in about one of every 500,000 live births. That's is WAY more frequent then we are comfortable with!!
