Indian boy born with head upside-down dies 8 months after life-changing surgery

The 13-year-old boy in India whose head was hanging at a 180-degree angle has died just eight months after life-changing surgery to fix it.
Mahendra Ahirwar, who suffered from a rare condition called congenital myopathy which made the muscles in his neck so weak his head would hang, had been absolutely fine in the morning.
His mother Sumitra, 36, said he had his lunch on Saturday, lay down to watch TV and at around 3pm passed away.
The family cremated Mahendra in a traditional Hindu ceremony at the weekend, surrounded by 25 friends and family.
