Twins break same arm, same way, same day

LONDON, June 18 (UPI) -- Identical 2-year-old British twins reportedly to broke their left arms in the same place on the same slide on the same day.

Now, Mitchell and Elliott Cocks have matching plaster casts to go with their matching clothes and haircuts, the Daily Express said.

After Elliott tripped over the base of the backyard slide doctors found he had broken his left arm. Mitchell, who had fallen off the slide earlier, complained of his left arm hurting and it was discovered also broken.

"I couldn't believe it," Sarah Cocks, the boys' mother, said.

Meanwhile, brother Kristian, 12, is also in plaster after breaking a foot last week. He'd only just had a cast removed after falling off his bike and breaking his arm.
