An official revealed that in a rare case, a woman in Bihar gave birth to quintuplets (five babies) Saturday.
The babies were born at a private hospital in Bihar's Nawada district. Three infants died soon after birth, while a boy and a girl survived despite weighing less than normal, said the district health official.
The woman, resident of Ambika village, was fine and the doctor was monitoring the health of the two surviving babies, he added.
Hundreds of villagers thronged the hospital to take a look at the quintuplets but doctors did not allow them to enter the hospital.
