Watch the video of a 6-day old Peruvian girl born with a rare leg deformity.  The deformity does not allow her to move her legs and urgent intervention is needed.

Primer Impacto interviewed a genetic specialist that fears the little girl is losing key leg muscle development. 

The little girl has been dubbed ‘la niña rana’ or frog girl.  She will be moved out of rural Peru to obtain medical attention in the capital city of Lima.  Alarmingly, one of out of every 25 babies born in Peru are born with some sort of deformity.
