For sheer fascinating stories, nothing beats the medical field.
In Colorado, a surgeon working to remove a tumor from a newborn’s brain found a perfectly formed foot, the beginnings of another foot, a hand and a thigh.

“To find a perfectly formed structure (like this) is extremely unique, unusual, borderline unheard of,” he said.
Borderline unheard of?
