I found this interesting and felt like sharing

I just read this news on Yahoo a rare kind of birth and thought you might like it too. I wonder if they could be called twins.
The two boys were placed on a ventilator at birth but doctors said their chances of survival were zero. Twins born with two heads, but sharing one body, are known as dicephalic parapagus. It affects around one in a million births.

The doctors said these children had no chance of survival but there have been similar cases where the twins survived (and still survive) into adulthood. I would assume, though, that likelihood of survival would depend on exactly which body parts/internal organs are shared. It must have been devastating for the family to experience the loss of their newborns.
