[To start with, someone else should check these results. Thanks!]

I made some assumptions:

- You and your daughter had different birthdays

- All 366 birthdays (including Feb. 29) have an equal probability of being called

- The station does not repeat birthdays within each day (however, they may from day to day)

With these assumptions I got the following:

(a) The probability of your and your daughter's birthday being called on the same day:

(b) The probability of your and your daughter's birthday being called sequentially (on the same day):

(c) The probability of your birthday being called in the morning and your daughter's birthday being called in the afternoon:

This amounts to the following:

(a) will happen (on average) once every 556 years (about 7 life times*)

(b) will happen (on average) once every 834 years (about 10 and a half life times)

(c) will happen (on average) once every 3340 years (about 42 life times)

[* assuming 80-year life times]

I'm very sorry for your loss, and I hope this helps. By the way, all of these arewellbelow the standard statistical significance of 5%. This was a truly anomalous event.
