A 15-year-old in southern India performed a Cesarean section so he could make the Guinness Book of Records as the world's youngest surgeon, the BBC reports. The boy's parents, both doctors, supervised and videotaped the operation on a 20-year-old patient. They later claimed he'd only assisted in the birth.
The authorities were not amused. A top official at the Indian Medical Association called the affair "shocking and extremely unethical," and state health authorities ordered a full investigation. The parents face possible disqualification as doctors. People in India are known for performing outlandish feats in the hopes of appearing in record books.
