Cyclops Baby

I heard that there was a baby born in the village who had only eye. Actually, he wasn’t born alive but was a miscarriage at about the sixth month. A few other women went on to tell me that the baby had the face of a donkey, the arms of a cow and the body of a dog. This I thought may be a bit far fetched.

They further told me that the same woman had given birth (miscarried) a baby whose eyes were coming out of its head. After this she had four healthy children.

Truth value of this story? Well something surely must have happened, likely people saw an extremely premature baby after the miscarriages and didn’t know what to make of it. Anyway, true or not it’s what is commonly believed and talked about in the village.
