Deaf twins in Belgium were euthanized by their doctor after the deaf twins realized they were going blind and would be unable to see each other ever again, their physician says.

ABC News reports that the brothers, who were 45 years old, were legally put to death by lethal injection at the Brussels University Hospital on Dec. 14.

More than 1,000 people legally availed themselves of doctor-assisted deaths in Belgium in 2011, most of them were terminally ill cancer patients.
