Less than a week after they were born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, the conjoined twin girls have died. The head of the intensive care unit, Abid Hossian Molla said they died on Sunday after apparently suffering from heart failure. They were taken into intensive care at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital, Bangladesh’s biggest public hospital, which set up a team of specialists to treat them.
“She was not in a stable condition since she was born. She died before we could intervene,” said Hossian Molla. “She was a rare conjoined twins with two heads. She had two hands and two legs like any normal baby, but inside she had two hearts, two sets of lungs and shared pelvic organs.” he added.
The twins’ father Jamal Mia said he had buried them at a public graveyard in Dhaka. “I can’t afford to hire an ambulance to take her back home. So the doctors gave me money to bury them in Dhaka,” Mia said. “I feel sad for them as we could not do much to save them.” he added.
