FORT DRUM, N.Y. (AP) - A woman who delivered quintuplets at a Southwest hospital over Christmas is back home in northern New York with the four babies who survived the birth.
Local media outlets report that Jessica Neri-Lucero and her infants - two boys and two girls - arrived in Syracuse Wednesday aboard two private jets from Arizona, where she gave birth to quintuplets Dec. 25 and 26 at a Phoenix hospital that specializes in multiple births. The first of the quintuplets, a girl, died during birth.
The family was taken by ambulance to Samaritan Medical Center in Watertown, near their home. The babies were reunited with their father and Neri-Lucero's husband, Army Sgt. Esdras Lucero, who had headed back to New York after the births.
The babies will be at the Watertown hospital for an undetermined time.
