Newborn sets record at McAlester hospital

Updated:
McALESTER, Okla. (AP) -- Hospital officials at McAlester Regional Health Center say a 14-pound, 3-ounce baby delivered there is the largest ever born at the hospital.

Lillian Elizabeth Ross was born Friday to Adrienne and Anthony Ross of Pocola.

A hospital spokeswoman said the baby already wears clothes made for children six to nine months old.

"The nursery had to go to pediatrics to get diapers for her because they didn't have any that would fit," Adrienne Ross said. "We've already had to start buying her new clothes. None of the stuff we bought will fit either."

The baby was born by a scheduled cesarean section without any serious complications.
