New York (AFP) - A New York woman delivered a healthy baby girl at the World Trade Center commuter station on Tuesday, the first birth at the site since the 9/11 attacks, officials said.

The woman from Queens, who went into labor at full term, gave birth at the World Trade Center PATH station at 2:30 am, assisted by Port Authority police officers.

The baby girl is called Asenat and weighs six pounds, 14 oz (3.1 kilos). She was delivered by Officer Brian McGraw on the mezzanine concourse of the station, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the station, said.

Hicks baby sold by doctor 50 years ago finds her biological family.

Quote:
Kriste Hughes has wondered about her birth parents since she was a teenager. But it was years later that she learned her adoption was far from typical -- a doctor in Georgia essentially sold her to her adoptive parents.
Quote:
With no record of the original birth mothers on their birth certificates, the Hicks Babies, now grown and with families of their own, had no way of finding out the truth about their past. Some didn’t even know they had been adopted until stories about the Hicks Babies first made headlines in 1997.
Quote:
Even with the knowledge of all that they missed, it was a bittersweet moment of triumph for the women, mother and daughter, to be finally reunited. They both celebrated their new found family and are making up for lost time.

“I’ve got both of my kids, my son-in-law, and my daughter-in-law and three of my grandkids, I’m happy,” Tipton said.
