A similar incident occurred in Connecticut.
Two minutes apart, but in two different years, twins were born in Split, Croatia: one was born last year, one minute before midnight on the last day of the year, and the other was born in the new year, one minute after midnight, Croatian public television reported on Wednesday. .
Damir RujiAccording to the head of the obstetrics department in Split, this is an unusual situation. Twins will celebrate the same birthday on different days, months and years. The doctor noted: There was no such case in his practice, and it would be difficult to repeat it.
He said that there were cases in which twins were born before and after midnight, but not on December 31 and New Year's Day. At the same time, he congratulated the parents and wished the newborns a successful and happy life.
The twins' mother is from Split, and this was her first birth. He visited her in the hospital Blazenko BobanThe head of Split-Dalmatia County also told reporters: “What happened in the maternity hospital in Split on New Year's Eve should be a turning point in the demographic picture of Croatia.” Ruji pointed out that most of the children were born in Split Hospital last year, that is, more than four thousand.
Although the Croatian case is distinctive, it cannot be said that it is a unique event, as something similar happened that night in the American state of Connecticut, where two brothers were born three minutes apart in 2023 and 2024.
