Family welcomes first baby born in 2014 at Elkhart General Hospital


As you rang in the New Year with champagne and party favors, some Michiana families started the new year with a new baby!

Adriana and Ranulfo Mejia are the proud parents of little Lindsay Mejia.

Lindsay was the first baby born in 2014 at Elkhart General Hospital.

She was born at 1:21 a.m. at 7lbs, 11 oz.

Lindsay was nearly a week overdue, so the family wasn't expecting her to be born in the new year.

"It feels good, but we didn't expect that," says dad Ranulfo Mejia. "We were excited to see her."

Mom and Dad are excited to bring Lindsay home in a couple days to meet the rest of the family.

Another baby was born even earlier, 12:04 a.m. at Memorial Hospital in South Bend.
