Ethan Suglo born with organs outside body

A three-year-old born with his organs outside his abdomen is to undergo life-saving surgery later thanks to a chance meeting with an English couple.

Ethan Suglo, from Ghana, has exomphalos which can be fatal but is routinely treated in the UK.

Last year his father Charles met doctors David and Jacquie Williams when they were visiting Ghana and asked them to examine his son.

The parents helped raise £39,000 to fly Ethan to the UK for surgery in Oxford.
