A US mother has described her newborn daughter a “little miracle” after she was born on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks at 9:11pm weighing 9lb 11oz.
Little Christina Brown came into the world at Methodist LeBonheur Hospital in Germantown, Tennessee.
Christina was born by Caesarean section and operating theatre staff were stunned when the baby’s time of birth and weight were recorded.
Commemorations were held across the US to mark 18 years since the attack, on 11 September 2001.
“She is a new life amongst the devastation and destruction,” said her mother Cametrione Moore-Brown.
“We heard the doctor announce the time of birth 9/11 and then when they weighed Christina, we heard gasps of astonishment when everyone realized Christina weighed 9/11, was born at 9:11 and on 9/11,” said father Justin Brown.
