TENNESSEE- A US mother gave birth to her daughter at 9:11 pm on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on Wednesday. The baby also weighed 9lb 11oz.

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

"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.

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

18 years ago on September 11, nearly 3000 people lost their lives in coordinated terrorist attacks across the USA.
