The Chinese province of Hunan became famous just after the birth of a baby. The newborn boy has 15 fingers and 16 toes. In addition, he has two palms on his two hands but no thumbs, CNN reports.
The boy's parents asked Internet users to help with gathering money for an operation. They need $30,000. The ones who didn’t felt indifferent to the boy have responded and the couple have managed to gather more than $ 6 000. The sum has been growing.
The child's mother has the same anomaly: she has six fingers and toes, NTV.Ru says.
Polydactyly is a congenital physical anomaly that occurs in one of every five thousand newborns. They usually remove excessive fingers and toes in early age.
Some celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Halle Berry have this anomaly. But an Indian boy Akshat Saxena is a real champion here: he has a total of 34 fingers and toes.
