Conjoined Twins Celebrate Reaching Landmark Age

It wasn’t technically a birthday but Ronnie and Donnie Galyon celebrated a big milestone when they officially outlived the original “Siamese” twins, Eng and Chang Bunker.
The Galyon twins celebrated turning 62 years, 8 months and 7 days old at a block party thrown by their brother Jim Galyon and his wife along with plenty of friend and neighbors.

Jim Galyon told ABC News he had promised his brothers a party when they finally reached their goal of living past the famous conjoined Bunker twins, who were a popular sideshow act in the 1800’s.
“I had promised ‘You get there, we’re going to have a really big bash,'” Jim Galyon told ABC News. “We’ve had a lot of friends and family coming in from five different states and local neighbors.”
