Got a baby with a healthy heart? Lucky you, this child was born with a great little heart, but… Just take a look at these pictures!
The baby was born in Nigeria, in one of the rustic areas. Right after the birth doctors rushed the little one to University Teaching Hospital of Borno state. There they are to perform the surgery that could save the life of this extraordinary child.
The baby was born with a very rare condition. Luckily only 8 children out of every million get born with something called ectopia cordis. It simply means that the baby’s heart gets developed on the outside of the rib cage instead of inside.
As you will seas from the video the heart pumps just fine and the baby survived the birth. Surely, the little one cannot live like this having the heart unprotected and open to all kinds of mechanical and bacterial threats and damages.
The video has gone viral and moved many people to pray for the little child to survive and have normal life and for the parents to get comforted.
We do have so much to thank for in our lives. Even if it just having your heart inside your ribs and not the other way around!
