A healthy, two-headed baby boy(s) was born to a Brazilian woman. This is the second time this year that a Brazilian baby has been born with two heads. The first time, the baby died due to lack of oxygen to one of the brains.
In these cases, one of the heads is usually removed, but both babies' brains appear to be functioning well and the child is healthy, complicating matters. In addition to the heads, both babies have their own spines.
