NEW YORK (AP) — Babies who were born as Superstorm Sandy pounded New York City and left a hospital without power a year ago have been brought together in a Manhattan hospital room today to celebrate their first birthdays -- and their survival.
They include one boy, Kenneth Hulett, who weighed just two pounds when emergency medical workers rushed him out of the blacked-out intensive care unit and down the stairs while hooked up to an oxygen tank. His mother, Emily Blatt, says her faith sustained her as she was evacuated on an orange sled.
In all, more than 40 babies were safely moved from the hospital to other facilities during the storm.
Today, their parents and hospital staff lighted candles atop cupcakes and sang, "Happy birthday, dear babies."
