An Indonesia woman named Ani gave birth to 19.2-lb baby yesterday in Medan, North Sumatra. The boy, Muhammad Akbar Risuddin, is among the heaviest babies ever delivered who survived. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he was delivered by Caesarean section.
"This heavy baby made the surgery really tough, especially the process of taking him out of his (mother's) womb. His legs were so big," Binsar Sitanggang said.
The boy is said to be healthy despite having to initially be given oxygen to overcome breathing problems.
Sitanggang described the baby as "extraordinary" in almost every way.
"He's got a strong appetite, every minute, it's almost nonstop feeding," he said. "This baby boy is extraordinary, the way he's crying is not like a usual baby. It's really loud.
