William David Schack is celebrating a birthday.
He was born just before 4 a.m. New Year’s Day at Carthage Area Hospital, the only New Year's baby in that hospital.
Baby William's mom says he shares his birthday with another member of his family.
"He is named after my grandfathers and today's my grandfather's birthday, too,” Davina Marcinko said.
"Everybody jinxed us because they kept saying we were gonna have a New Year's Day baby,” William’s father, Ryan Schack, said.
Other north country hospitals have not reported any New Year's Day births.
