Septuplets Day Ii

— From member station WOI, Mark Moran reports on yesterday's birth of newborns to parents Bobbi and Kenny McCaughey ["McCoy"]. The 3 girls and 4 boys now are listed in serious condition. One of the boys was upgraded from critical to serious after several hours. Doctors were amazed at how healthy the babies are and give them all a 95-percent chance of survival. They would be the world's only known set of surviving septuplets.
