A woman in Zimbabwe is feared to have given birth to a headless baby at a hospital in Masvingo - health officials have stated.
The woman (whose name has been withheld) is said to have given nurses the shock of their lives after she prematurely gave birth to twins - one of which is feared dead.
"It is true there is a case like that, but it is very rare to have such a situation though it is generally known as a congenital abnormality, which is basically a deformation that occurs to a foetus during the early stages of pregnancy. The headless foetus was incompatible with life after premature birth, while the other twin which was born alive, but with a very big head, died after a few minutes," Acting Masvingo provincial medical director Dr Amadeus Shamu has revealed.
