Too identical!

"Identical twins were admitted to the same hospital with the same injury after separate accidents within the space of an hour. Liam Lynch, 6, of Cookham Rise, Berkshire, broke his collar bone climbing his garden fence, and his brother suffered the same fate after tripping while running. Both were taken to Wycombe General Hospital."

(Anonymous; "Twins' Identical Mishaps," London Times, April 6, 1994. Cr. A.C.A. Silk)

Cross reference. Cases of nearly simultaneous deaths of identical twins are collected in BHF35, in our catalog: Biological Anomalies: Humans II. Details here.
