Woman gives birth to baby with two heads

Urmila Sharma, 28, gave birth to a baby, weighing 7 pounds, 7 ounces, with two heads in northern India Wednesday. According to the New York Daily News, the mother was too poor to afford an ultrasound and had no idea she was carrying conjoined twins.

"We only came to know she was carrying conjoined twins after an ultrasound two weeks ago," Dr Shikha Malik, who delivered the baby, said.

Doctors said it was too late do anything by the time Sharma delivered the twins via Caesarean section.

The twins each have a head but share one body and all their vital organs, so separation is not possible. Doctors do not expect them to survive surgery.

The twins are currently in the hospital's intensive care unit.
