After 2 Weeks, Fate of Two-Faced Girl Uncertain

She's been hailed by villagers as the reincarnation of a Hindu god, but after 2 1/2 weeks, the survival of the little girl born with two faces remains uncertain, according to a report from ABCNews.com.

Still unnamed, the infant was born in the village of Saini in India with polycephaly, which means she has one body with two heads — complete with four eyes and two mouths.

"At first I was a little bit afraid," Vinod Kumar Singh, the 24-year-old father of the girl, told ABC News. "But then I accepted whatever God gives."

Many in this part of India consider the girl to be the reincarnation of Ganesh, the Hindu god who is half person and half elephant, according to the report.

So far the family has resisted medical treatment, M. Ashmosd, the resident medical officer of nearby Saifi Hospital, where the girl was born, told ABC.

"I've told them we're ready to do the CT scan for free. But they have ignored me," he said.
