Deaf twin brothers in Belgium who discovered they were going blind and would never see each other again are euthanised in hospital

Deaf 45-year-old identical twin brothers, from the Antwerp region, Belgium, have been euthanised by doctors at Brussels University Hospital after finding out they would also soon go blind. The brothers spent their entire lives together and were unable to bear the thought of never seeing each other again, according to reports. Euthanasia is legal in Belgium if those making the decision can make their wishes clear and are suffering unbearable pain.
