Child ‘without a face’ born in Portugal

October 28, 2019  09:22

A child was born with a rare facial defect: the baby does not have eyes, nose and part of the skull, BBC reported.

Doctors thought that the baby will live only a few hours, but after two weeks he was breathing on his own and has learnt how to eat from a bottle.

An obstetrician has been suspended after a baby was born as parents of baby Rodrigo had not been aware of their son's severe physical abnormalities.
