An Indonesian woman shocked doctors when she gave birth to a 'cyclops' baby with one eye - but sadly lost her seven hours later.

Atana Ariyanto and his wife Suriyanti from Java island welcomed their fifth child, a girl, at the Rumah Sakit Umum Daerah Hospital of Mandailing Natal district in North Sumatra on Thursday afternoon through a natural birth.

But the baby, who weighed 5lbs, was born with only one eye in the middle of her forehead and a missing nose, although her other organs were complete.

Suriyanti hadn't undergone an ultrasound and was so shocked to see her daughter that she, along with her husband, shut herself away in the room.
