A baby boy with an improperly formed face born in an Indian village has been labelled ‘alien’ by locals.
The little boy yet to be named was born with large red eyes and holes in place of his nose. He also has no ears.
He was born to parents Karishma and Arshad at their home in Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh, India, in the early hours of Tuesday.
His parents who seem fascinated by his features have described his birth as ‘God’s will’
His young mother was stunned when she saw her second child for the first time.
“His eyes were red and huge. He was looking at me and his nose was flat. He also does not have ears.
“I had gone into labour late at night and by 4am he was born naturally. I was excited to see him but when I saw his face I could not believe what I saw.
“I have never seen a child like this before.”
Since the birth of the boy villagers have been flocking to the family home thinking he is an “alien”.
But father Arshad, a painter, believes his son is God’s will and is optimistic of raising him for as long as he can.
“God has given him to us. We will not abandon him. We will take care of him as long as he survives.”
The baby weighs five pounds and has a healthy pair of limbs. Doctors believe he will survive and he is currently breathing properly.
The couple, who have a two year old daughter, are hoping for miracle that could give their son a long life.
