Baby with 2 heads born in Philippines
Manila, Jul 29: Officials at the Philippine hospital said on Wednesday, Jul 29 that doctors were trying to save the life of a baby girl who was born with two heads in Manila.

The baby was born on Tuesday, Jul 29 and is now under observation at the neo-natal intensive care unit of the Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Manila.

A hospital spokeswoman said the baby was stable at the moment, but said she may die if tests proved both heads shared only one set of vital organs. She also said, "The rate of survival will depend on the shared organ. If they only have one heart, they will not survive,"

Officials also said the extra head appeared to be a twin of the girl who failed to fully separate during the development stage in early pregnancy.
