It took a week this year for the first baby born in the New year to arrive at Northern Inyo Hospital. Young Carlos Morales, Jr. was born to Carlos and Sandra Morales just after 5:00 pm on January 7th. Northern Inyo Hospital Staff arranged to let us film the little guy and his happy parents, whom we congratulated.
At Mammoth Hospital, the first newborn of the year came earlier, on the third of January. Mayra Michelle was born to Jorge and Azucena Valenzuela. Mayra Michelle was 7lbs, 14 oz.
