Mom back home in NY after giving birth to quints in Arizona

FORT DRUM, N.Y. -- A woman who delivered quintuplets at a Phoenix-area hospital over Christmas is back home in northern New York with the four surviving babies.

Local media outlets reported that Jessica Neri-Lucero and her infants -- two boys and two girls -- arrived in Syracuse Wednesday aboard two private jets from Arizona, where she gave birth to quintuplets Dec. 25-26 at Banner Desert Hospital in Mesa. The hospital specializes in multiple births.

The first of the quintuplets, a girl, died during birth.

The family was taken by ambulance to Samaritan Medical Center in Watertown, near their home. The babies were reunited with their father and Neri-Lucero's husband, Army Sgt. Esdras Lucero, who had headed back to New York after the births.

The babies will be at the Watertown hospital for an undetermined time.
