Parents: Newborn conjoined twins have died in GA

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - The parents of conjoined twin boys delivered at an Atlanta hospital say their newborn sons have died less than two days after they were born.

Robin and Michael Hamby of Ladonia, Alabama, announced the deaths of twins Asa and Eli late Friday in a video posted on a Facebook page they used for months to update supporters on the pregnancy and birth. The twins, who shared a heart and were joined side-by-side, were delivered Thursday morning by C-section. The Hambys said they died Friday afternoon.

Robin Hamby said in a video recorded from her hospital bed that "God gave us extra time with them that some parents don't have."

Michael Hamby told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer ( ) the boys will be cremated and a memorial service will be planned later.
