MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Doctors at a Minneapolis hospital said they delivered 19 consecutive baby boys, a record for the facility.

The University of Minnesota Medical Center in Minneapolis said the first boy was born at 9 p.m. Friday and was followed by 18 more boys before a girl was finally born at 7 a.m. Monday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Tuesday.

Officials said the weekend marked the hospital's longest uninterrupted streak of baby boys.

"I'm calling it a statistical marvel," said Lisa Archer, a nurse manager at the hospital.

The hospital said a total 106 boys have been born at the facility this month and only 77 girls.
