• Mother plans to separate conjoined twins born in Jacksonville


    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Doctors at Wolfson Children's Hospital in Jacksonville are treating a set of conjoined twins.

    Carter and Conner were born in Jacksonville on Friday.

    They are connected at the torso.

    According to mom's Facebook page, the twins were supposed to be baptized on Monday.

    She says they are stable and doing well.

    Conjoined twins occur once in every 200,000 live births.

    Only 30 percent are boys.

    Their mother posted on Facebook that they are planning on separating the twins.

    But she says they have a lot of other health problems that need to be addressed first, before they can think about surgery.
