Pediatric resident Brandon Seminatore was doing a monthlong rotation at the same neonatal intensive care unit where he was cared for as a newborn when he came across someone from his past.

The East Bay Times reports Sunday that long-time nurse Vilma Wong asked Seminatore who he was when she saw him standing near an incubator wearing blue scrubs. She remembered caring for a baby with the same name whose father was a police officer.

It turned out to be Seminatore, who is now training to become a child neurologist.

The story of their reunion at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto has been shared thousands of times via social media.

Seminatore weighed 2 pounds and 6 ounces, the size of a small pineapple, when he was born in 1990.
