Conjoined Brothers Mark A Milestone

BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (July 3, 2014) Donnie and Ronnie Galyon of Beavercreek, Ohio, who are hoping to be recognized later this year as the world's oldest conjoined twins, plan to celebrate this weekend as they hit a milestone to which they've been looking forward for years.

The brothers will be 62 years, 8 months and 7 days old on Saturday, and will have outlived Eng and Chang Bunker, the famous 19th century "Siamese Twins."

Ronnie Galyon told the Dayton Daily News they've dreamed about holding a Guinness world record since they were young.

That could happen in October, when they turn 63 and would pass the record held by conjoined twins from Italy.

The Galyon brothers live in Beavercreek with their brother and his wife where they spend most of their time in a special bed from a Grand Rapids, Mich., hospital.
