The video, filmed in Shanghai on March 19, shows the boy - nicknamed Xiao Fei - with a third limb protruding from his groin area, in between his two other legs. According to reports, the extra leg belonged to a parasitic twin. Since Xiao Fei's mum did not attend regular pregnancy check-ups, the parasitic twin had not been detected before his birth. Surgeons removed his extra leg and corrected his deformed right leg successfully in the operation. Parasitic twins are rare and only occur in around one in a million live births, reports said.

Protest outside hospital after up to 57 pupils poisoned

Angry citizens of a Russian city led a spontaneous protest outside a hospital after multiple schoolchildren allegedly fell ill because of a landfill site. The video shows hundreds of people from the city of Volokolamsk, around 120km west of Moscow, milling around the hospital in the city where the ill children are staying. Four pupils from one school in the city were taken ill supposedly from toxic fumes from the nearby Yadrovo landfill, reportedly bringing the total number to 57. The author of the video, lawyer Denis Kunaev, said residents had been complaining about the issue for more than a year. It is believed a gas, hydrogen sulphide, is causing the illness among residents of the town of roughly 23,000. The governor of the Moscow capital region, Andrei Vorobiev, said the schoolchildren will be moved away from Volokolamsk. The Yadrovo landfill, opened in 2008, is a major dumping ground for rubbish from Russia’s capital. But residents say gasses from the site have been causing nausea, vomiting and fainting.

Bungling thief wears see-through plastic bag to mask his face

Indian police have arrested a bungling robber after he used a see-through plastic bag to mask his face. The three CCTV cameras at Anisika mobile store in Kanyakumari, in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, caught the man breaking into the shop wearing a transparent plastic bag on the night of March 14. The thin sheet of plastic made no attempt to mask the thief’s face. He also left more clues to help the police track him down easily. He helpfully lifted his mask a few times before the CCTV cameras to see better. He pressed his hands fully on the display table of the shop leaving ample fingerprints on the glass surface. The bearded thief also made it a point to reveal a prominent tattoo above his left thumb. The shop owner, Sachin, who discovered the theft the next morning was upset that phones and accessories worth nearly 1,500 pounds had gone missing. But after running the CCTV footage of the night he called the police with a smile on his lips. The police have arrested a local youth on the basis of the clues. Describing the thief as an ‘amateur’ they said they will reveal his name and more details of his crime after they complete the investigation. +CLIENTS PLEASE NOTE: MUTE FROM SOURCE+

Monitor lizard found lounging on bathroom shelves

This is the moment a pensioner went to the bathroom and found a monitor lizard laying on the shelves. Kimkhun Likitwattanaset, 81, had been sitting in his living room saying Buddhist prayers this morning (March 21) when he heard noises coming from the toilet at his home in Samut Songkhram, Thailand. The great-grandfather walked inside and was stunned when he saw the 5ft long reptile lounging on the plastic shelves next to the shower. Toiletries were even strewn across the floor from where the lizard had been rummaging around climbing over the furniture. Kimkhun called the emergency services and rescuers from the Sawang Baynjatam foundation arrived and quickly captured the monitor. The pensioner said: ''I was meditating when I heard noises coming from the bathroom. I didn't know what it was and when I went to look, there was a monitor lizard clinging to the wall like a gecko. ''Yes, it was a big surprise. It had caused a lot of mess and there were a lot of things on the floor. I closed the door and waited for the volunteer service to come and catch it.'' Rescuers caught the monitor lizard and dragged it outside before hauling it into a van to be driven away and released into the wild.

Hospital uses robots instead of nurses2m04s

Hospital uses robots instead of nurses

A hospital struggling to cope with soaring numbers of patients has solved the problem - by using robot nurses. The Mongkutwattana General Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand, was bombarded with new patients but was unable to hire enough staff at the end of last year. Instead of taking on new nurses, they bought three robotic nurses and kitted them out in the health facility's yellow uniform. The machines travel now between desks delivering important paperwork and medicine to doctors. Hospital boss Dr Riantong said the robots - dubbed Nan, Nee and Nim- improved efficiency and reduced human error. He said: ''There are seven or eight stations in this hospital. ''We use the three robotic nurses to deliver documents to and from each station. ''These robotic nurses help to improve the efficiency and performance of working in the hospital.They are not being used to reduce the number of employees.'' The robots are shaped like humans and travel along magnetic strips attached to the ground. ''They can travel more than 100 metres throughout the hospital for a single trip - each one covering several miles a day.'' Dr Naennaa, a specialist in neuroscience, said he is now planning to extend the use of the robots into the pharmacy units where they will pick and organise medicine. He added: ''I believe that all hospitals facing problems have thought about adopting them. ''They help to reduce errors, increase the rapidity of working, and lighten the load of hospital officers’ work.''

This is the amusing moment a couple followed a truck carrying an enormous phallic snow sculpture in a city in central Portugal. The footage, captured from the inside of a car by a passenger, shows the truck driving through the centre of Covilha city transporting the penis snow sculpture on its open rear end. ‘’Oh goodness!" the female filmer can be heard saying in the background. ‘’E perfeito! (It’s perfect!)," she says admiringly. Her male companion writes: ''While I was driving through one of the coldest places in Portugal, I noticed far away on a truck a 'snowman' -so I decided to follow it with my own car because it looked quite big." Only when the couple got closer did they discover the sculpture wasn't a snowman after all. ''After I finally got close enough it appeared to be a giant penis made out of snow,'' he said. The clip was filmed on March 18. It is not known to where the sculpture was being transported or why.
