AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) — A sad update: The conjoined twins born Monday in Georgia died late Wednesday night.

The conjoined twins were receiving treatment in the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital of Georgia and died due to multiple complex medical complications.

The boys — who shared a heart and liver — were delivered by C-section at the Georgia Regents Medical Center. They remained in critical condition in the NICU in the adjoining children’s hospital for two days.

The boys’ mother, Brittany Crafton, is in good condition and the family has requested the media and public to respect their privacy during this time of bereavement.

A GoFundMe site has been established to assist in the medical expenses for Crafton and her sons. Click here to learn more or contribute.
