  LINK CHANGE/ BBC More Details

     What's in the water...in NE Brasil?
     For the second time this year...a baby there has been born...with 2 heads.
     This time it's a 9.9 pound baby boy from a 25-year-old woman in Anajas in Para state.
    "And for us, it was a great surprise to find out that the child was in really good health," said a doctor.
    The baby has one heart and one set of vital organs...but both heads are nursing normally.
    A doctor says it "would be absolutely impossible" to separate the two heads...because the body shares a liver, heart, lungs and pelvis.
    A 27-year-old woman in Pariaba state recently gave birth to a child with two heads...but the baby died hours later from lack of oxygen to one of the heads.
