(Newser) – A Mississippi couple welcomed a 9-pound, 11-ounce baby into the world on 9/11, at 9:11pm, the AP reports. The Commercial Appeal reports Christina Malone-Brown was born by cesarean section at a hospital in Germantown, Tenn. Christina's father, Justin Brown, says bystanders joked his family should play the lottery. The doctor kept saying, "Oh my goodness, I've got a 9/11, 9/11, 9/11," he adds. The newborn's mother, Cametrione Malone-Brown, says her baby girl brought a spot of light to a day darkened by memories of the 2001 terror attacks. (Read more strange stuff stories.)
