Pair of Boston babies arrive just after midnight
BOSTON (AP) — The race to have the first baby born in Massachusetts in 2014 apparently ended in a tie.
Boston Medical Center and Brigham and Women’s Hospital both reported births at 12:02 a.m. on Wednesday.
Boston Medical says a boy, Belanov Ryan William Bercier, was born to Wildaline Morisset, weighing in at 7 pounds, 4 ounces.
At the same time, Mia Carolina Espinoza Rodriguez was arriving at Brigham and Women’s Hospital weighting 9 pounds, 12 ounces. The hospital says she was greeted by mother Diana, father Christian and big brother Christian, who is 3 years old.
Brigham and Women’s officials say they delivered five babies in the first hour of 2014.
