Rare surgery performed on an African infant born with four legs and two spines, Surgeons promise her a normal life 

A baby girl born with a rare medical condition with four legs and two spines is now healthy and will live a normal life following her surgery. Big thanks for her survival should be given to the surgeons at Advocate Children's Hospital in Park Ridge, Illinois, reports Telegraph.

Dominique was born in the Ivory Coast in West Africa with a very rare condition. She had the remnants of her conjoined twin still attached to her. The bottom half of her not-fully-developed twin's body protruded from Dominique's neck and back, creating a large mass.She couldn't do many of the things other babies could do, until now. A medical team of 50, including five surgeons performed the successful surgery.

Dominique was released from Advocate Children's Hospital in northwest suburban Park Ridge five days after her procedure, into the care of the foster family who had learned about Dominique on social media, through an organisation called Children's Medical Mission West and knew instantly they wanted to help.
