And Tsung Tsung’s amazing musical talent garnered him many fans after his piano playing videos were uploaded to the Internet.
Other unusual children make the headlines after TV documentaries are made about their shocking conditions. Deepak Kumar Paswan underwent four hours of surgery to remove a parasitic conjoined twin from his body. The surgery was filmed for viewers to watch and learn about his incredible life.
