A Chinese woman gave birth to a set of twins five days after having a baby girl, a report said Sunday. 

The 29-year-old mother gave birth to the first baby, who weighed 1.5 kilograms, on November 9 at her home in Chongqing city, southwestern China, the Beijing Morning Post reported. 

She did not realize she was carrying triplets, but felt movement in her stomach and went to hospital for a checkup two days later. 

On November 14, she gave birth to the twins, who were born five minutes apart. 

It is unusual for one or more babies in triplets to be born so far apart, the report said -- BEIJING (AFP)
