‘Inseparable’ Twins Die Together

By Compiled From Wire Services

Identical twin bothers who lived all of their 61 years together died within minutes of each other Sunday, both suffering heart attacks.

William and John Bloomfield had been watching a body-building championship at a casino when one of them collapsed, police said.

Before an ambulance crew arrived to attend to him, the second brother collapsed as well. Neither regained consciousness.

The brothers moved from Tasmania in 1989 and shared a house in Perth, capital of Western Australia.

“Police who attended the home found identical pairs of everything. All their clothes were in sets of two,” a spokesman said. “Apparently, they were inseparable.”
