The true story of triplets separated for 19 years

Hosted by

When 19-year-old Bobby Shafran showed up at college for the first time in 1980, the other students welcomed him back as Eddy. Eddy was a student there the year before, and looked exactly alike. Bobby and Eddy figured out quickly that they were twins -- separated at birth and adopted by two different families. Newsday picked up the story and ran a photo of them. Another young man, David, saw it and recognized himself in the photo. He was their third brother. The triplets had been separated for 19 years. A new documentary tells their story.
