The senior medical officer of Suntreso Government Hospital has denied rumors of a baby being born with conjoined limbs.
Managers of the Suntreso Government Hospital in Kumasi have denied reports of the delivery of a mermaid-like baby at the hospital.
The reports suggest the child was born with a rare defect. It has only one leg joining the tortso from the waist down to the two feet.
The report further stated that the baby is conjoined at the heels which look like a caudal fin with no genitals but the baby looked healthy at birth.
The senior medical officer of the hospital, Dr. Agyarko Poku in an interview with Nhyira FM’s Naa Amerley expressed shock at the report saying “We have records of all those who delivered on that day, so there re is nothing of that sort.
“This is where I have been for the past weeks and so when we heard the news in the dailies we were very surprised because there is no iota of truth (in it)".
“…Yes something like that can happen but not in the hospital I work” he insisted.
