Statement on conjoined twins born in Augusta

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The conjoined twins receiving treatment in the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital of Georgia died last night due to multiple complex medical complications.

The boys—who shared a heart and liver—were delivered by C-section on Monday at the Georgia Regents Medical Center and remained in critical condition in the NICU in the adjoining children’s hospital for two days.

The boys’ mother Brittany Crafton is in good condition and the family has requested the media and public to respect their privacy during this time of bereavement.
