Touching! Photos of Indonesian baby born with two faces, two brains but one head

A baby has been born in Indonesia with two faces, two brains but one head because his conjoined twin did not develop properly in the womb.

The complication has left two-month-old Gilang Andika, from Batam, a city in Indonesia, looking disfigured and suffering from a potentially fatal brain condition called hydrocephalus, which is causing fluid to build up in his brain.

Gilang has just one body with two arms and two legs. On his head, he has the face and brain of a sibling which did not grow its own body in the womb, because their mother’s egg did not completely split in two during pregnancy.

Because of his rare predicament, Gilang cannot be breastfed, so has to be fed milk through a tube.

And doctors have said he is not likely to live long because of his condition.

His parents, Ernilasari and Mustafa, now desperately want help to save their son’s life after local doctors told them they were unable to operate. They want to seek treatment for Gilang, but they don’t have the money.
