… and it’s his twin brother! From this BBC News article:
Doctors in Bangladesh say they have removed a long-dead foetus from the abdomen of a teenage boy who was complaining of stomach pains.
They said the foetus would have become the boy’s twin had it grown normally in their mother’s womb.
Now that’s something you wouldn’t recover from too quickly! Just imagine, the worse you’d think of is that you’re having one bloody major stomach ache, heck, probably gastric pains (which coincidentally is Malaysia’s undisputed no. 1 reason for medical leave) or something.
I just can’t imagine the look on the poor kid’s face when the doctor said, “Good news; we found your long lost brother. Bad news; he’s dead. The worst part is that he’s been dead inside you for the past 16 years.” Eurgh!
