An identical twin separated at birth from her sister in a hospital mix-up and reunited by a fluke 28 years later is suing Spanish health authorities, reports the Times of London. The mistake didn't come to light until one of the sisters walked into a shop run by a friend of the other. The friend, startled when the woman snubbed her, realized she was a twin and arranged for the sisters to meet.
“The similarity was crushing,” said the friend. “They were like two drops of water.“ DNA tests proved the two were sisters. A baby girl born three days later had accidentally been switched with one of the twins. "In one day, my world fell apart,” the twin raised with the wrong family said of the reunion. “I wish it had never happened.” She is seeking $5 million in damages.
