A mother gave birth to a real life “mermaid baby” but tragically lost it just four hours later. Muskura Bibi, 23, shcked  medics when she delivered the baby, who was born with fused legs, in Kolkata, India. The rare phenomenon is known as Mermaid Syndrome, or Sirenomelia, and was the second such case in the country and the fifth in the world.

Muskura hadn’t gone for a sonogram and only discovered her baby’s condition when she gave birth in Chittaranjan Deva Sadan Hospital on Wednesday.

The baby’s gender couldn’t be determined due to the rare condition and it tragically died four hours after it was born.

Dr Sudip Saha, child specialist at the hospital said: “I had never seen such a baby before. It is the first case of Sirenomelia in the state and second in the country.

“The baby had normal formation in upper part of the body but below the waist its legs were fused together. The lower part was not developed completely. “We learnt the mother had not undergone ultrasound sonography throughout gestation.

Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving leader, said in a video clip in which he urged Gantz, the country’s former military chief, to meet him “as soon as today”, that he had pledged during the election campaign to form a right-wing, Likud-led government.
