Though statistics show the frequency of multiple births has been on the rise over the past couple of decades, the birth records at St. Mary's Innovis Health during late October-early November might still be cause for a double take.


There were no fewer than five sets of twins -- including nine girls and one boy -- born at the Detroit Lakes hospital during the three-week period of Oct. 20-Nov. 10.

All were born of families that live in the Detroit Lakes area.
