News of the bizarre story spread quickly, and it was even featured on the Cape Cod Healthcare's Facebook page.
“Riddle of the day: Samuel was born first, but his twin brother Ronan is older,” the post says.
“How is that possible?”
"Answer: Samuel was born at 1:39 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6 and by the time Ronan was born 31 minutes later, #DaylightSavingsTime had ended for the year and the time fell back by an hour, making Ronan’s official time of birth 1:10 a.m."
“Samuel and Ronan were born at Cape Cod Hospital to parents Emily and Seth Peterson of West Barnstable.”
‘“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,” said Seth, who is trooper with the Massachusetts State Police.
Deb Totten, a maternity nurse at Cape Cod Hospital, was stunned by the time twist.
In fact, it was the first time she’d ever seen this happen in more than 40 years of nursing!
Needless to say, these twins have a pretty amazing birth story to tell for years to come.
