Conjoined Ohio twins, 62, mark a milestone

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/05/2014 - 10:18
Donnie and Ronnie Galyon turn 62 years, 8 months and 8 days old, thereby outliving Chang and Eng Bunker, conjoined twins who lived from 1881 to 1874. A party for the Galyons is planned in their hometown of Dayton, Ohio. The Galyons are joined at the sternum and share organs, which became an issue four years ago when Ronnie was sick with a virus that affected Donnie’s health as well.   The twins live with their younger brother Jim Galyon and his wife Mary. Jim Galyon said his older brothers toured with their father, and at times seven other siblings, as a “human oddity” until the shows fell out of fashion in the 1970s.
