LONDON – New MRI images from a London medical study show a pair of twins appearing to fight for space in their mother’s womb.

The video was captured during a study looking into a rare medical condition that is potentially deadly among twins called twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.

The video was made at London’s Center for Fetal Care, according to Reuters.

Twin-to-twin syndrome is a rare condition that happens in identical twins when blood from one twin moves to another. The condition can be deadly for the twin losing blood. Researchers were suing the MRI to try and figure out why the blood loss happens.
