MANILA, July 29 (Xinhua) -- A baby girl with two heads and one body was born in a Manila hospital late Tuesday night.
Doctors at the Fabella hospital told reporters on Wednesday that the baby, weighted almost 6 pounds at birth, was stable but might not have good chances to survive as they share only one heart.
The conjoined twins were named only as Baby A and Baby B.
The father, a tricycle driver, asked for prayers and financial help when reporters reached the hospital bed.
Doctors said the baby needs to be placed under neo-natal intensive care unit and will be transferred to the Philippine Heart Center for treatments to sustain the fragile life. But an operation to separate the conjoined twins is a stretch of the hospital capabilities in the country.
Another infant born with two heads died in Indonesia on Tuesday due to organ failure. It lived only five days.
