Childhood Friends Discover That They're Brothers

"Ron Cole and Duncan Cumming played together as kids in Ottawa in the 1950s. They were pals. But what they didn't know then is that they were also brothers. Recently, the two men, who were both adopted, discovered they were siblings. And today, after 60 years, they met face-to-face again for the first time.

"It's scary," Cole tells Carol from our Ottawa studio, just hours after the reunion. "You go from not knowing that you have a brother and all of a sudden you find out you do. It's just scary.""

Ignore the term "biological" throughout, know that referenced identities may have been falsified by way of adoption, but listen to the CBC broadcast here.
