A baby born with a third leg in Detroit is being called a one-in-a-million case by her doctors, according to a Local 6 News report.

"What destiny has was a twin that was attached to her, but really only the sort of lower half of that other twin," pediatric surgeon Dr. Daniel Teitelbaum said.

"What destiny has was a twin that was attached to her, but really only the sort of lower half of that other twin," pediatric surgeon Dr. Daniel Teitelbaum said. "So, a leg, her hips, her pelvis."

The baby's mother said she did not know that Destiny had a third leg until after birth.

"After the NIC unit came down and looked at her, that's when I found out that there was an extra leg attached to her," Destiny's mother Lisa Lunsford said.

Lunford said she is praying for her daughter's full recovery.

Is part of that picture blacked out or did they use gaffer tape to attach a third leg to a normal baby?

It's blacked out so you can't see the baby girl's vagina. :wavey:

Poor kid....I'm sure that with the great medical treatments available now she'll be alright though.
