PHOENIX – A Tucson woman is resting at a Phoenix hospital after giving birth to quintuplets.

A Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center spokesman says the five babies of Lorena and Enrique Puig include three girls and two boys. They were born Wednesday within four minutes of each other.

The babies range in weight from 2 pounds, 1.7 ounces to 2 pounds, 8 ounces. Phoenix Children’s Hospital officials say the quintuplets will likely remain hospitalized for another 10 weeks. Lorena Puig carried the babies for 29 weeks. Banner Good Samaritan is nationally known for the successful delivery of more than 90 multiple births for mothers in and outside of Arizona.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
