Half grown twins born

Tamara Kankowski delivered Lucas, who weighed 10 pounds, 2 ounces and Dillon, who weighed 9 pounds, 9 ounces, by Caesarean section at Bethesda North Hospital in Cincinnati.

Dr. Manny Alvarez, senior managing editor of FoxNewsHealth.com, who specializes in high-risk pregnancies, said their weight was far higher than the average weight of 6-and-a-half pounds to 7 pounds.

The newborn twins just fell short of setting the world record for the combined weight of newborn twins, which had been set a few years ago in Britain at 23 pounds and 12 ounces.
