(Scroll down for video) Two men and their families are angry after learning that two children have been switched at birth.

David Tait and Leon Swanson of Manitoba, Canada, were born at the same hospital just three days apart in 1975.

The two men, who live in the same town and have been friends from many years, said that since they were 20 years old, people have teased them that they look like the other’s family members.

However, they did not think much of it until last year, when it was discovered that another set of men, Luke Monias and Norman Barkman, were switched at birth.

After those men took their case to the public, Tait and Swanson, who were born in the same hospital as the two men, decided to take DNA tests.

The DNA tests confirmed that each man was raised by the other’s biological mother.

Government officials are now investigating the incident as a criminal act, saying that one case can be a mistake, but multiple cases are suspicious.

Other people who were born in the same hospital have reportedly come forward to take DNA tests to see if they were switched at birth.
