A two-year-old Chinese boy had to be operated upon to remove an undeveloped fetus of his parasitic twin brother from his stomach

According to the Inquisitr, Xiao Feng, from Huaxi, China, was rushed to the hospital after his stomach became so inflated that he was finding it difficult to breath, News.com.au reported.

Doctors were shocked when the X-Rays and MRI scans revealed that the baby had a fetus of his twin inside his enlarged stomach.

The surgeons announced Feng “pregnant” and rushed him to the operation theater to get rid of dead twin’s fetus.

Doctors said that the fetus was 20cm wide and had developed a spine, fingers and toes, and it had grown so much that it was taking up almost two-thirds of the boy’s stomach.
