PICTURE! Here is a photo of Shiloh Pepin “Mermaid Girl” featured on TLC tonight. Shiloh Pepin is a girl with Mermaid Syndrome or sirenomelia. Shiloh Pepin is one only three people in the world surviving with sirenomelia.
The TLC documentary entitled “Mermaid Girl” followed Shiloh in her home of Kennebunkport in 2007. Her mom tells local press this week that because of the show’s producers Pepin got a wetsuit to begin swimming lessons.
Sirenomelia is when your lower body doesn’t develop correctly as a fetus resulting in the two limbs attached. Most fail to survive hours after birth. But Shiloh is doing great, after a kidney transplant in 2007.
