CHILE- A male baby was born in Chile, in the southern city of Temuco, with his tiny twin trapped inside his stomach. The very rare condition is referred to as “fetus in fetu.” A scan on the mother had discovered the 4-inch-long fetus inside the boy’s body.

The fetus had no chance of survival, since it had not fully developed and had no head. After the baby boy was born, doctors operated to remove the tiny twin from the baby’s stomach.
