Identical twin sisters come to life hand to hand after challenging life-threatening condition

12 May 2014 [15:14] - TODAY.AZ
This was the heart-warming moment identical twin sisters were born HOLDING hands after surviving a life-threatening condition.

Tiny Jillian and Jenna Thistlethwaite held onto each other tight as medics held them aloft after a successful delivery.

Proud mum Sarah, 32, beamed: "I can't believe they were holding hands. That's amazing," it was reported.

"They're already best friends."

Jillian and Jenna share a one in 10,000 condition that means they have the same amniotic sac and placenta.

It is often deadly as their umbilical cords can become tangled.

But the sisters were delivered without incident and are already well enough to have been removed from their ventilators.

A relieved Sarah said: "It's just hard to put into words how amazing it feels to know the girls are OK."
