A baby girl born with her own twin inside her stomach has had the dead sibling successfully removed.

The newborn was born with her 1-pound, 1-ounce sibling inside her after a medical condition called “fetus in fetu” – an abnormality which happens only in one in every 500,000 births – developed during mom Pooja Kumar’s pregnancy.
