A BABY girl has been born with 12 fingers and 14 toes, writes Digital Editor Graham Walker.
Le Yati Min is believed to be the most “digitally enhanced” person in the world.
The 16-month-old girl’s family in impoverished Myanmar, in Burma, is now seeking a Guinness World Record to prove it.
A neighbour is helping her mother apply after hearing that a boy from India currently holds bragging rights for the most digits, with 12 fingers and 13 toes.
Polydactylism — being born with an extra finger or toe — is unusual, but it is even more rare for someone to have a spare functional digit on both hands and feet.
She lives with her family in a small wooden house on the outskirts of the Southeast Asian country’s former capital of Yangon, where she runs around with seven toes on each foot.
Mom Phyo Min Min Soe, aged 26, said her daughter is happy with some natural advantages.
“She seems to have a stronger grip on things — so she doesn’t drop things much,” she says.
According to the Guinness World Records website, the record for most fingers and toes for a living person is currently held by two people in India, who have 12 fingers and 13 toes each.
