A US mother says her newborn daughter is a “little miracle” after she was born on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks at 9:11 pm weighing 9lb 11oz.

Little Christina Brown came into the world at the Methodist LeBonheur Hospital in Germantown, Tennessee.

“She is a new life amongst the devastation and destruction,” said her mother Cametrione Moore-Brown.

Commemorations were held across the US to mark 18 years since the attack, on 11 September 2001.

Christina was born by Caesarean section and operating theatre staff were stunned when the baby’s time of birth and weight were recorded.

“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.

“It was really exciting, especially to find some joy during a day of such tragedy.”

Rachel Laughlin, head of women’s services at the hospital said such a coincidence was extremely rare.

“I’ve worked in women’s services for over 35 years, and I’ve never seen a baby’s birth date, time of birth, and weight all be matching numbers,” she said.

Christina’s parents say that when she is older they will share with her the significance of her birth.

The 18th anniversary of the attack saw a moment’s silence take place at various locations, including the sites of the attack, “Ground Zero”, in New York, at the Pentagon, Virginia, and at Stonycreek Township in Pennsylvania.

Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the attack and thousands more were injured.
