A TikToker recently uploaded a video revealing how his birth had forced his father to cancel a meeting at the Twin Towers on 9/11.
Over the past few weeks, a TikTok trend has taken pace where users reveal their ‘craziest one-in-a-million story’.
While making a video about this trend TikToker Mark Bowling explained that his dad had always wanted a son, having ‘kept trying and just couldn’t give up. He had three daughters before him so when the doctor told him that his fourth child was going to be a boy, he was over the moon.
And when Mark finally came along, he wasn’t born on his due date, although he can’t recall whether he was born early or late. In any case, Mark arrived in this world on September 11, 2001, the day his dad had been scheduled to attend a security meeting on the ‘101st floor of tower one of the Twin Towers’.
Of course, it was the birth of his long-awaited son so he canceled the meeting. Had Mark arrived on his actual due date, or on another day entirely, his dad could well have been at the World Trade Center on the day at 9/11, seated high up at a meeting at the time when the planes crashed into the towers.
What was supposed to be one of the best days in Mark’s family turned out to be one of the most tragic and shocking days in American history. They keenly felt how close they’d been to losing one of their own beloved family members.
The viewers were left gobsmacked by Mark’s story. So many users commented that they had goosebumps while listening to the uncanny yet lucky story.
