Two-Headed Baby Born In Brazil

In this weeks shocking news, a two-headed baby born in Brazil this week is actually a set of conjoined twins sharing one body because of a rare birth defect, doctors explained on Thursday.

The twins, named Jesus and Emanuel in honor of the upcoming Holiday, have 2 distinct brains and spinal cords but share internal organs, appearing as a single baby with two heads.

Because both brains are functioning and the twins are in stable condition, doctors have ruled out any kind of surgery for the moment, according to the Santa Casa de Misericordia Hospital in the northern town of Belem.

The two babies ‘would be twins but ended up being joined together because of a delay in the cellular division,’ the hospital said.
