Boy with Unusually Long Neck

A Chinese teenager with an unusual neck condition will receive corrective surgery. Fu Wengui, 15, has 10 vertebrae in his neck ā€” 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. But a Beijing charity announced it will provide the money for a surgical procedure and doctors in Chaoyang Hospital are developing a treatment plan. “I hope I can have a normal neck,” he said adding he always attracts unwanted attention when he goes out in public.
