The miracle tot’s parents have launched a desperate appeal to help him live longer after he was born in Uttar Pradesh state on Wednesday.
Although the chances of him surviving past his third day was less than one in a million, the as-yet-unnamed tot is in need of private health care and a vital but expensive operation.
But parents Priyanka, 24, and Nirbhay Pal, 31, earn less than £3 a day and have no way of funding the treatment required for their first child.
Dad Nirbhay said: “The doctors said we should go to a private hospital and get surgery done.
“But I am a poor man. We can barely afford two square meals a day. I don’t know what to do. We are hoping that the government will help us.”
