Six-leg Child!

Incredible! Such an outstanding phenomenon calls 4 an authentic expert, & that's why i must applaud the surgeons who operate the child yet he's still alive.
Moreover the conjoin Child must be a miracle child. & should be the 1 percentage survivors out of the100% of the born conjoined children.
