A rare set of identical female triplets—including two conjoined at the pelvis— have been born at a south Texas hospital.
Corpus Christi Medical Center said the three baby girls—Catalina, Ximena and Scarlett—were delivered Saturday by C-Section one day shy of 34 weeks. All weighed 4 pounds, 11 ounces and were currently breathing without the assistance of a respirator, the hospital said.
Parents Sylvia Hernandez and Roel Torrez called the girls a miracle sent from God.
"God chose us to take care of these babies," Torrez said in a statement released by the hospital. "We put our faith in God's hands first and everything will be alright..."
