POLYDACTYLY – Chinese girl has 6 identical fingers on her hand!

February 2, 2011

Chinese girl has six identical fingers on one hand!

 Xiao Qian – a 4-year-old girl from China (Wuhan, Hubei province) – has five fingers on her left hand and six fingers on her right hand – see photo.

At Pu’ai Hospital, Doctor Xin Danmo operates on Qian, removing her left-most finger and attempts to fashion the end finger into a thumb.

The cause of the extra finger (polydactyly) is attributed to radiation or chemical exposure to the mother during pregnancy.

But why remove the extra finger? The child at the very least could be used to sell rings, type, pick things up and play the recorder. Will she thank her parents when she’s older?

But bigger than any of that, Qian is a sign that the rush to do way with imperial measures, the adoption of the metric system – because the French mostly have ten fingers – is hasty.

Anorak News suggests:

“We say stick another finger on Qian’s left hand and make her patron saint of the Metric martyrs. We march on Paris – on our hands!”

What advice would Hrithik Roshan (the famous Bollywood actor who’s double thumb was presented last month at Madame Tussauds) provide the partents of this girl…?
