A pair of twins were expected to be born on the same day. They were born the same day, just at odd times.
The set of twins were born at a Cape Cod hospital only 30 minutes apart. However, Daylight Saving Time took a twist on this. Samuel, the first baby, was born at 1:39 A.M., and just after the time change, the second baby, Ronan, was born at 1:10 A.M.
Instead of being born at 2:10, he was born “an hour before.” Although baby Samuel was born first, he is technically younger than his brother.
The parents already knew this might have been a factor as they were headed to the hospital. A trooper with the Massachusetts State Police said, “I said earlier that night that they were either going to be born on two different days or the time change was going to come into play.”
The maternity nurse, Deb Totten, said this is the first time she has seen such an occurrence in more than 40 years of nursing.
