Check out what this mother did to her mermaid child


Wu a young 23 year old mother took the decision to kill her own child.


The reason for the decision was because the foetus in her womb had a tail instead of legs. This condition is described as mermaid syndrome or sirenomelia.

According to daily-mail she was examined by doctors in Yichang City in China where the scans showed showed the foetus without a bladder and stunted liver. It is a rare congenital deformity where the legs are fused together thus forming the a mermaids tail. 

The cause of this is still a mystery to many doctors and medical community. Wu decided to terminate the pregnancy which doctors told her occurs once in every 100,000 babies because the baby would have survived only an hour after birth.

Another well known case was Shiloh Pepin who died in 2009 after 150 surgeries at the age of 10. She was dubed 'the mermaid girl'.
