Baby With Two Heads Survives Risky Operation (photos)


Three month old Asree Gul, with an extra head as she lies at a hospital in the eastern Afghanistan city of Jalalabad

This shocking picture shows a three-month-old baby Asree Gul with an extra head as she lies at a hospital in the Afghanistan city of Jalalabad.

Asree Gul's mother gave birth to twins, two girls, one girl was in good health but Asree Gul had an abnormality. She had an extra head attached to her head!
Asree Gul's second skull made it difficult for her to sleep, and led to her being stigmatised in their village. So to save her, her poor parents approached doctors for help.

Asree Gul had to undergo a rare operation at such a tender age to have the second skull removed.
And thank God, the surgery was a success!! Though it was complicated as vital nerves and blood vessels were linked to the second skull.

The generous doctor completed the operation - which would usually cost between £2,500 and £3,700 (N944,000) - for free, as the family could not afford it.

Here's a picture of her with her twin sister
