Once-con­joined twins make de­but

Austin American-Statesman - - NEWS -

More than nine months af­ter they were born joined at the lower chest and ab­domen, twin girls made their pub­lic de­but Thurs­day at the hospi­tal where they were sep­a­rated. Al­li­son June and Amelia Lee Tucker, clad in an­i­mal-striped shirts and flow­ered head­bands, were in­tro­duced dur­ing a news con­fer­ence at Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal of Philadel­phia. Both girls still have nasal tubes but ap­peared rosy-cheeked and alert as they were held by their par­ents, Shel­lie and Greg Tucker, of Adams, N.Y. Al­li­son was dis­charged Mon­day. Amelia needs a lit­tle more re­cov­ery time.
