Baby born with 4 eyes and two faces

An Indian woman has given birth to baby girl with four eyes and two faces, a report said Saturday.

The 4-day-old baby girl is being hailed by some as a reincarnation of the Indian God Ganesha, The Daily Telegraph reported.

The baby girl and her mother, who is from a village near New Delhi, are both in good health, doctors said.

The newspaper said the baby's birth comes about two years after the birth of Lakshmi Tatma, the "twin" girl born with four arms and four legs.
