Surely one of the Wonders of the world. Conjoined twins is an extremely rare phenomenon, even rarer than the blue moon! Their occurrence ranges from 1 in 49,000 births to 1 in 1,89,000 births. Most conjoined twins are stillborn. Lucky are those who are able to survive. Moreover, research says one-third die within 24 hours of their birth.
Conjoined twins are identical twins who are joined in the womb. Just imagine how tuff it must be to perform even all the daily actions. From using the washroom to simply eating your meals, everything must be a big task for them. They have a TLC show dedicated to them, under the name “Abby & Brittany”. Aged 26 now, they are an excellent example of survival despite adversaries.
