Chinese twins born in single body with 2 heads

Beijing – A hospital in southwestern China says conjoined twin baby girls with a single body and two heads have been born at its facility.

A staff member at the Suining City Central Hospital in Sichuan province says the girls were born on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the staff member said the parents, who are farmers, did not want to have the babies at first, fearing they could not afford to keep them alive.

They transferred the twins to a hospital in the nearby metropolis of Chongqing to be examined by experts.

According to the local Huaxi Metropolis Daily, the twins weighed 4kg and measured 51cm.

They have two spines, two esophaguses and share other organs. Doctors were quoted as saying it would be nearly impossible to separate them.
