Children's Hospital Colorado said it could not confirm that the birth had happened Thursday morning.

McCullough told the station Hannah is alive but in critical condition. The TV station did not report on the fate of twin Olivia, who was not expected to survive.

The twins shared an abdomen, liver and intestinal tract. The girls had separate hearts and kidneys.
