Mercy’s 1-11 baby girl makes headlines.

Not only was Ryan Schurtz born on 1-11-11 at Mercy Health Center in Oklahoma City, the 7-pound, 14-ounce baby girl was born at 1:11 p.m. and is the 11th grandchild in the family. Although mother Nicole Schurtz asked her physician if she could be induced on 1-11-11, she never dreamed she would deliver at 1:11 p.m. When her contractions began that morning, her husband, James, jokingly asked her to hold out until 1:11.
