What on earth can make a mother decided to let go of her unborn child?

A young mother has decided to terminate her pregnancy after finding out she was carrying a mermaid-like foetus in her womb.

The mum, 23-year-old Wu, was six months pregnant when she was examined by doctors in Yichang City, in Central China's Hubei Province.

The foetus also did not have a bladder and had a stunted liver, reports said.

Doctors at the hospital told Wu that the foetus was suffering from a condition known as sirenomelia, or 'Mermaid Syndrome', a rare congenital deformity in which the legs are fused together, giving them the appearance of a mermaid's tail.

Despite carrying the foetus for half a year, Wu decided to terminate her pregnancy after specialists estimated that the baby would only be able to survive for a few hours after birth.

The causes of Mermaid Syndrome are still a medical mystery, and it is said to occur only once in every 100,000 pregnancies.

Shiloh Pepin, an American dubbed 'Mermaid Girl', suffered one of the world's most well-documented cases of sirenomelia.
