As noted at The Telegraph on Tuesday, May 10, 2011, the parents, who are migrant farmers only learned the condition of their baby two days before the mother gave birth and feared they could not afford to keep them alive.

Apparently, earlier ultrasound results did not reveal the two heads since technicians were said to have been seeing a single embryo in the profile and the position of the body somehow have hid the second head.

The Chinese twins, both baby girls, was born on Thursday, May 5, at the Suining City Central Hospital in Sichuan, which has two spines, two esophaguses but share other organs.

“It is hard to say how they will survive in the future but we will try the best to keep them alive at the moment,” Pu Youhua was quoted at the report, who is a doctor in the said hospital.

Local reports was noted to have revealed that the Chinese conjoined twins weigh 9 pounds (4 kilograms) and measured 20 inches long (51 centimeters).

Nevertheless, the Chinese twins have been transferred to another hospital for further observation, but doctors told reports that it is nearly impossible to separate them.
