Bayezid Hossain from southern Bangladesh suffers progeria, a rare disease which makes the body aged eight times than a normal.Believe it or not this old-looking guy is just 4 years old.Bayezid was born in a government maternity hospital in 2012. Sadly, his parents were devastated because doctors weren’t able to help him.His mother Tripti, 18, said “I was terrified to see him when he was born. He was just flesh and bones. He looked like an alien and it was heartbreaking for me.
Doctors had no idea what to do, they said they had never seen such a baby. They warned us that there was nothing they could do.”Despite the kid’s condition, the family of three went home without receiving any support from the local government.Bayezid’s father Lovelu, 22, is a laborer who only earns Rs 5,000 (£50) a month.
My son isn’t a normal baby and it’s tragic for any parent to know that his child will not survive.‘But I am proud of him. He is extremely intelligent compared to other children of his age. His relationship with his cousins is very friendly and funny. He understands his condition but he doesn’t like to talk about it. He just cries when he feels awkward.”
