World’s oldest living male conjoined twins set world record 2010

DAYTON (Ohio) – TWO US men who’ve been certified as the world’s oldest living male conjoined twins are moving in with their little brother.

A charity in Machias, New York, called the Christian Youth Corps Inc says it’s helping 58-year-old Donnie and Ronnie Galyon by modifying the home of their brother, Jim Galyon, in the spring. The twins live in a tiny home in Dayton, Ohio. Their brother lives in nearby Beavercreek.

Donnie and Ronnie are listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. They’re joined at the torso. They have four arms and four legs and separate hearts and stomachs. They share a lower intestine.

The twins retired from a touring carnival. They are in declining health and could face going into an institution.

But their brother says he wants to keep them at home so they’re free and independent.
