Surgeons in Pakistan operated on a 2 month old infant to remove two fetuses that were growing inside her. The doctors said that it was absically a case of triplets, where two of the fetuses just happened to grow inside the third. It's abnormal, but it happens occasionally (approx. 1 in 500,000 is what the article says regarding the odds). These particular fetuses were reported as partially grown and weighed a total of about two pounds. They also reportedly died at four months.
