Doctors Gave These Conjoined Twins 24 Hours To Live, But Two Years On They’re A Living Miracle Doctors never thought Chelsea and Nick Torres’s twins had a fighting chance. In fact, they advised the couple to terminate the pregnancy when they realized the girls were conjoined. But when Chelsea delivered a healthy pair of girls, they defied the odds – and they continue to do just that. In June of 2016, Chelsea found out she was pregnant with twins. She and her husband, Nick, were no strangers to parenthood. In fact, they already had a son, Jaysin, whose third birthday they’d celebrate a few days after finding out the news. But five weeks into Chelsea’s pregnancy, she started to get cramps. Her doctor performed an ultrasound and told the 22-year-old mom-of-one that she was having a miscarriage. “I left in tears,” she wrote on her GoFundMe page. With more analysis, doctors determined that Chelsea’s unborn babies had landed too close to her cervix, which would cause the pregnancy to end. “I waited for a miscarriage,” she wrote. But by the time she hit eight weeks, it still hadn’t happened. So, Chelsea traveled to a new clinic, where a second ultrasound revealed the unexpected – a heartbeat. “I cried in excitement and told the tech I was crying because I was happy,” she wrote. The 22-year-old’s joy distracted, however, her enough that she didn’t pay much attention to the babies on the screen. When a doctor came in and began asking Chelsea questions, she wrote that she “knew something was wrong.” After the inquiry, the doctor let the mom-to-be know that the twins in her womb were conjoined. “It was a blur after that,” Chelsea wrote of the appointment. One in somewhere between 49,000 and 189,000 births results in conjoined twins, although the phenomenon inexplicably occurs more commonly in Africa and Southwest Asia. About 50 percent of all conjoined babies arrive stillborn, while one-third pass away in under 24 hours of being born. Chelsea’s doctor told her she wouldn’t have to worry about either scenario, though. “You will miscarry soon,” she recalled them saying. After that, the 22-year-old once again sought another opinion. She saw a doctor who provided her with multiple options, including terminating the pregnancy.

Mementoes of a crueller age: Bizarre photographic archive shows how the 19th century was obsessed with physical deformities. These are the bizarre photographs from a 19th century freak show where members of the public would pay to witness people with physical deformities. During a visit to a freak show, many offered guests the chance to buy 'carte de visites', featuring the image of their favourite attraction. Among those featured in The Thanatos Archive is 'The Chinese Dwarf' who was only 28in tall. Another attraction was Laloo, who was born with a parasitic twin brother. Some of the more extreme shows even featured dead babies.

10 Little-Known Facts About Judy Garland Dorothy Gale, the heroine of The Wizard of Oz, is one of the most recognizable characters in the film, with her blue and white gingham, ruby red slippers, and her braided pigtails. But for Judy Garland, Dorothy was just the beginning of a decades-long career that touched the hearts of millions. Throughout her musical success in Hollywood and Broadway, and through her very public battle with addiction, Garland’s successive setbacks and comebacks—and her enduring strength of spirit—have inspired fans for almost 50 years after her tragic death in 1969. Ruby slipper-wearing Judy Garland was one of the most beloved actresses of Hollywood’s golden era. While her sudden passing was unfortunate, her exuberant voice lives on in a legacy of classics and musicals still enjoyed by many today.
