A teenage boy has revealed what life is like with 26 fingers and toes – and says that the extra digits have led people to call him ‘octopus’. Omar Martinez is just 14, but he says that his extra fingers and toes only get to him when people start to stare.
While other boys his age are heading off to school, Omar spends his days working to take care of his sisters, cutting wood and doing what he can to put food on the table. The young boy, who lives in El Salvador in Central America, is one of four children – but since his parents passed away, it’s up to him to take care of his family. With six fingers on each hand and seven toes on each foot, Omar says that people call him ‘the octopus’.
