Woman gives birth to one-eyed baby in Yemen



A woman gave birth to a one-eyed baby in Yemen’s Al-Bayda province who died seven hours after its birth, the Gulf News reported.

According to the Yemeni journalist Karim Zarai — who posted the pictures of the newborn on social media — said the baby was born with a single eye and a single optical nerve.

The birth took place last Wednesday; however, the baby couldn’t survive. “This is a very rare case that was known in Greek Mythology,” the journalist was quoted as saying.

The doctors said the baby had a hole in place of the baby’s eye and had only one vein for vision. There were no comments made by the hospital au-thorities regarding the case. The media reports said that the world saw only six cases like this in five centuries.—Agencies
