A woman in Bihar gave birth to quintuplets (five babies), according to official sources.
The babies were born at a private hospital in Bihar’s Nawada district. Three infants died soon after birth, while a boy and a girl survived despite weighing less than normal, said the district health official.
The woman, a resident of Ambika village, was fine and the doctor was monitoring the health of the two surviving babies, he added.
Hundreds of villagers thronged the hospital to take a look at the quintuplets but doctors did not allow them to enter the hospital.
