The poor newborn girls have their own heads, but share the same arms, legs and torso.
The not-yet-named twins were born on May 5, by Caesarian section in the Chinese province of Sichuan.
Because they share the same body and internal organs, it’s impossible to separate them – and they’ll need constant medical attention for the rest of their lives.
Abby and Brittany share one body, but have an advantage over the Chinese newborns, because many of their organs are doubled up — which has helped them to lead active lives.
Although these medical miracles have a tough life ahead of them, we hope they stay healthy and happy.
