Photos: Man Born With 4 Legs Begs Doctors to Remove Extra Limb So He Can Have a Normal Life

A young man who was brought into this world with four legs has used social media to appeal for doctors to amputate his two extra limbs.

22 year old Arun Kumar, was born with two extra legs growing from his lower back, one underdeveloped and the other permanently bent at the knee.


Arun, who lives in Uttar Pradesh, India, appealed through social media for medical help to remove his extra legs.

A team of specialists at Fortis Hospital in Delhi responded to Arun’s plea for help and organised a series of tests to find out how the legs are attached and if he can be treated.


Arun said:


“If I get an operation and doctors take off my two extra legs, then I can also live a normal life. I may be able to move and walk properly like others. If they are willing to do an operation, then I’m ready.”

Although he cannot move his extra legs, he does have feeling in them and carrying the weight on his back is damaging his posture and ability to walk.


Arun’s mother Kokila Devi said:

‘During childbirth he got stuck and didn’t come out without pain. And when he came out, all his limbs were the same size.’

Doctors at various hospitals deemed Arun’s extra legs too risky to operate on when he was a baby.
