Baby Girl Born On 9/11 At 9.11pm, Weighing 9lbs 11oz
In a one-in-a-million coincidence, a woman gave birth to a little girl weighing 9lbs 11oz, at 9.11pm on 9/11.
Mum Cametrione Malone-Brown, from Tennessee, was taken in for a c-section at Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital at 8.55pm and her baby Christina Malone-Brown's first cry was heard at exactly 9.11pm.
Proud dad Justin Brown says he was left in disbelief when his new daughter was placed on the scales and found to weigh 9lbs 11oz.
The poignant day of her birth marked 18 years since the devastating terror attacks that caused the deaths of 2,996 people and injured more than 6,000 others, but the coincidence has left people stunned - not least her mum and dad.
Speaking to CNN, Justin said: "We have a true 9/11 baby. Time was just rolling then all of a sudden we heard the 'wah' and then they called it 9.11.

He went on to say the doctor who delivered little Christina was just as surprised when she noticed the odd coincidence, adding: "She was so excited and said this is a 9-11, 9-11, 9-11 baby."
The hospital has shared news of the unusual birth on social media, in which mum Cametrione was quoted as saying: "We had emotions and we felt it.
"Then 18 years later on [from] that day, 9/11, you find triumph; you find a piece of joy from a day that was so drastic and still hurts."
The post has been flooded with messages of congratulations and well wishes, while the hospital has said adorable little Christina is doing well and is set to go home in the next few days.
