Newborn Twin Saves His Brother’s Life With a Hug

Twins Dylan and Deiniol Zimunya were born at just 25 weeks gestation. The boys weighed in at a mere 2 lbs and 1 lb 9 oz at birth. Their arrival came unexpectedly after their mother, Hannah, went into labor prematurely and gave birth two days later in the hospital.
