Baby born at 1lb 1oz fights primordial dwarfism to start school


The overjoyed parents of a miracle boy, born weighing just 1lb 1oz and given a "zero per cent chance" of staying alive, have told with pride how he is starting school in September - also revealing that he may be the only child with his rare form of primordial dwarfism to have survived. Able to fit in his trainee paramedic dad, Rickie Wyllie's palm when he was born at 31 weeks, Tyler Wyllie, four, of Corby, Northamptonshire, who is now 2ft 6in (78cm) and weighs a stone and a half weighed the same as a loaf of bread.
