The New York Daily News reported that a Chinese teenager with an unusual neck condition will receive corrective surgery.
Fu Wengui, 15, has 10 vertebrae in his neck — three more than the average person. The condition causes him pain, stress on his nerves and makes it difficult for him to walk with the super long neck, according to REX Features.
The condition also means the young man was diagnosed with congenital scoliosis and abnormal chest frame when he was 6.
But a Beijing charity announced it will provide the money for a surgical procedure and doctors in Chaoyang Hospital are developing a treatment plan.
