A miracle baby in China is making headlines after surviving being born at only 23 weeks. The newborn measures 28cm in length and has been nicknamed the "Chopstick girl" due to her tiny size (chopsticks range from 23 to 28 cm in height). Now eight days old, the premature baby was born after her mother underwent an emergency operation due to complications in her cervix. Prior to undergoing surgery, doctors told the expectant mother and her husband that their unborn child had almost no chance of surviving the procedure given that its organs were still developing. But, defying all medical odds, the baby lived through the surgery and is now fighting for her life at Chongqing Southwest Hospital.
