Toddler born with three legs going home to Bangladesh after surgery in Australia Image copyright AFP Image caption Choity, seen here with her mother Shima, can now run around, her doctor says A Bangladeshi toddler born with a third leg attached to her pelvis is returning home after successful surgery in Australia.
