Once conjoined, twins celebrate miracle milestone

Clarence and Carl Aguirre were the rarest of conjoined twins — joined at the skull. They were separated 10 years ago, in a first-of-its-kind series of successful operations at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. Clarence and Carl, who turned 12 in April, will attend a party Monday at Montefiore to mark the anniversary.
