·1 min

Lori and George Schappell, conjoined twins who lived independent lives despite being joined at the head, passed away at the age of 62. The exact cause of their death remains unknown. Experts in the field state that the death of one conjoined twin often leads to the quick death of the other due to their shared circulation. The Schappells defied expectations for conjoined twins and held the Guinness World Record as the second-oldest pair. They were connected at the sides of their foreheads and had different physical abilities and gender identities.
