A baby weighing an eye-watering 14lb has been born in China. His mother gave birth at the Chongji Maternity Hospital in Yecheng City, Shanxi.
The child, who has not been named, arrived on August 23, weighing twice the amount of an average newborn.
The baby’s weight was a complete shock to staff at the hospital who helped deliver him. Chongji Maternity’s director said: “It’s the first time I’ve delivered such a huge baby in my 30-year career.”
