Con­joined twins born with two heads and one body die at 20 days old

Daily Trust - - DIGEST -

The In­dian con­joined twins born with one body and two heads have died af­ter bat­tling to sur­vive for a re­mark­able 20 days.

The ba­bies, born by C-sec­tion weighed 7lbs 7oz when they were born on March 13th.

They were born with one body, two heads, two necks, two spines and two sep­a­rate oe­soph­a­guses and tra­chea. But they had only one heart and stomach and one lung each.

Trag­i­cally, their mother Ur­mila Sharma, 28, de­cided come as a shock but we were still dev­as­tated.’

Dr Shikha Ma­lik, who de­liv­ered the ba­bies in Soni­pat, north­ern In­dia, said at first that while one baby was sleep­ing, one was - re­mark­ably - cry­ing.

Mrs Sharma, who al­ready has a three-year-old daugh­ter Shalini, chose to not meet her ba­bies while they were alive.

Now, the fam­ily will try and pick up the piece of the sad­ness of the last month.
