Medical → Manar Maged... and her parasitic head (Set 1)

A nurse holds an Egyptian 10-month-old baby named Manar Maged with a parasitic head in a hospital in the city of Banha, 25 miles, north of Cairo (Egypt) (Feb., 2005).
Manar Maged of Egypt became the first baby to survive an operation to remove a parasitic head, but she died in March of 2006 of a persistent infection in her brain.

Manar Maged (March 30, 2004 - March 25, 2006) was an Egyptian girl, born with an extremely rare medical condition called craniopagus parasiticus (sometimes called "parasitic twin"): a type of conjoined twin where the twins are attached at the head and one fails to develop completely in the womb, becoming completely dependent upon the other.
On 19 February, 2005, Manar underwent a thirteen-hour operation in Benha, Egypt, to remove her twin. The operation was successful, and by 28 May she had recovered enough to go home. Her twin, who had been named Islaam, died on the operating table when the separation was carried out, and was buried by her family.
Manar died following a severe brain infection on March 25, 2006, 13 months after her successful operation.

I see saliva coming out of the parasitic twin's
mouth. So where exactly does it go if swallowed?

This scares the living shit out of me.

And really, the second one died on the
operating table? You think it was
"alive" with no stomach or any other
necessary organs?
