BOSTON, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- A baby boy was born about half an hour after his younger twin brother, due to a unique scenario brought on by daylight saving time.

The first of Emily and Seth Peterson's twins, Samuel, was born at Cape Cod Hospital at 1:39 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6. His brother Ronan was born 31 minutes later just as daylight saving time had ended, making him 29 minutes older.


"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 father said.

Deb Totten, who worked as a nurse for 40 years, told WCVB it was the first time she had seen that kind of birth.
