OH DEAR! Photos of Baby Born in Nigeria With Heart Outside His Body

 

This is really touching! This baby was born with his heart outside his body at a local hospital in Gaidam area of Yobe state. Hausa Facebook page Rariya shared the photos online and also said the baby was immediately rushed to University Teaching Hospital, Maiduguri, Borno State for a life saving surgery.  This extremely rare condition - Ectopia Cordis - affects eight in every million births. The baby's heart is beating right outside his body. We pray he gets the needed help.[Photos after Cut: Viewer Discretion is Advised ]
