Babies with one body - level 1

Babies with one body - level 1

Two babies from Peru are special. They are twins and they have one body. Their parents don't like it. They want help from doctors.

So thirty doctors and nurses operated on the twins. They tried to separate them. The operation was very hard. It took eight hours. Each baby has one body now. Their parents are very happy. The babies will be OK. Doctors will check on them in the future. They will check to make sure they are still OK.

Interesting words: twins (babies who are born together), operate (open your body and change something), separate (make two from one).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
