INDIA — Conjoined twins born at a hospital in India appear to share everything below their two, separate heads, hospital officials told ABCNews.com.
A 28-year-old mother in India did not not know she was carrying twins because she was too poor to afford an ultrasound, according to Asia Cover Press.
Dr. Ashish Sehgal, the CEO of Cygnus JK Hindu Hospital confirmed the news to ABCNews.com in an email.
The mother delivered her twins Wednesday morning by C-section, Sehgal said.
The twins are reportedly doing well, but doctors fear they will not survive long. The babies have separate spinal cords, necks and heads, but share limbs and vital organs.
The twins weighed 5.3 pounds, Sehgal said.
