(Check It Out! Pictures!) KARACHI, Pakistan- The ‘six legged’ weeks-old infant named Umar Farooq was undergone a successful surgery at the National Institute of Health in Karachi. The baby has now only two legs after removing his extra limbs.

The extra limbs are the arms and legs of a conjoined twin which believed that failed to develop. According to experts, baby Umar Farooq’s previous condition is to be one in one million children which are suffering with the same rare congenital disorder.

X-ray technician Imran Shaikh, father of the baby Umar Faroog said, "We are a poor family. I am thankful to the government for helping us treating my baby.”
