Twins Born on Same Day... in Two Separate Countries?
No, they weren't on the Canadian / American border. Here's some cool news about an English pregnant women who gave birth to twins in two separate countries. It seems she gave birth to the first child at her Parents home in England and then they went to the nearest hospital, an hour away in Scotland to give birth to the second child.
It's such a cool birth story, you would think Donna Keenan might have planned it, but she didn't. The 28-year-old woman was watching the Euro 2012 with her boyfriend at her parents' home in England on July 1. She'd just returned from a routine checkup, and everything seemed fine. Then just an hour and a half later, she went into labor.
According to the BBC, there was no time to get to the hospital, so they called paramedics. Her son Dylan Joseph was born at about 10 p.m. at the home.
But the story didn't end there, as Keenan was pregnant with twins. The emergency workers thought they had enough time to get to the hospital for the second birth, so off they went.
The nearest hospital was an hour away -- in Scotland. Hannah Rose was born there about an hour and a half later. That's right, the twins were born in separate countries! How incredible is that?
