Tragic Ending for Conjoined Twins

Sad news on Tuesday from Singapore, twin Iranian sisters joined at the head died within 90 minutes of each other during the surgery to separate them.

At the start of the 50 hour surgery, many were hopeful that their brains could be separated, but doctors revealed on Tuesday that there was serious trouble early on when the vein graft they had put in the twin's brains became clogged.

So even though surgeons were able to separate the two, there was massive bleeding. The sister's wishes were to be separated under all circumstances.
