By The Associated Press SAN DIEGO — The weaker of two Siamese twins died Saturday, her heart too weak to pump blood/ after surgeons separated her from her infant sister's chest and belly in an extraordinary operation.' Sarahi Morales went into cardiac arrest and died about an hour and 35 minutes after the : surgery ended, Dr. John Lamberts said. Her 15-day-old sister, Sarah, still has an excellent. chance of survival, Lamberti said. "This is a bfttersweet victory because I was hopeful we could have both babies survive," said Lamberti, a heart specialist who participated in the operation at San Diego Children's Hospital. The five-hour surgery was considered risky from the start. Doctors cut three blood vessels that ran through the band of skin connecting the twins, and disconnect- ed their joined livers. "Everybody tried real hard," Lamberti said. "It's exciting to be on the frontiers of medicine and do it well. Sometimes the decks ' are stacked." Nurses and technicians left the surgery cheering, but appeared grim at a news conference a short time later. "I was very happy the two made it out of the operating room," said Dave Skillin, a cardiovascular technician. "I had a feeling they weren't going to." The parents; Miguel Morales and Maria Espinoza, were told after the surgery that Sarahi's condition,was grave. "At the moment the loss is clearly overwhelming," said Blair Sadler, president and chief executive officer of Children's Hospital. Sarahi was the weaker of the twins since they were born Jan. 12. She was born with a heart defect. She received a pacemaker during the surgery. The girls were separated about three hours into the surgery.
