NEW: Worcester Twins Thriving 17 Years After Famous Hug

Monday, February 25, 2013

 

When the Jackson twins were born 12 weeks premature in October of 1995 in Worcester, doctors were not sure if the two newborn girls were going to make it.

When one started to fade at just three weeks old, a nurse thought to put her sister in the same incubator as her, resulting in an immediate improvement in her health and the famous photograph of the "rescuing hug."

Now the girls are thriving 17-year-olds, and their story was recently featured on CNN.

Check out the video of the segment below.
