The two tiny bodies were attached at the abdomens, and immediately after the birth, doctors had to operate in order to separate the 2 girls. The mother was hoping that both the twins could be separated properly and can lead a healthy life. But the same was not the case after the complicated surgery. Only one of the conjoined twin sisters survived.
