Two year old with 4 arms and 4 legs undergoes surgery

But just think of all the things she could get done?…email, laundry, flipping pages from a book and walking on a treadmill — all at the same time.

BANGALORE, India (AP) — Doctors began operating Tuesday on a 2-year-old girl born with four arms and four legs in an extensive surgery that they hope will leave the girl with a normal body, a hospital official said.

The girl named Lakshmi is joined to a “parasitic twin” that stopped developing in the mother’s womb. The surviving fetus absorbed the limbs, kidneys and other body parts of the undeveloped fetus.
