WATCH VIDEO: Newborn Baby, The Size Of An Onion, Breaks World Survival Record


London – A baby who was born the size of a large onion has entered the medical record books.

At just 268 grams – under 10 ounces – he becomes the boy with the lowest birth weight to have been discharged from hospital in good health. According to The Standard newspaper, the newborn was so small that he could fit into an adult’s cupped hands.

Following five months of treatment at Keio University Hospital in Tokyo, the infant weighs 7lbs (about 3.1kg) and is said to be feeding normally.
