AL Baby May Be World's Smallest Surviving Newborn

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The University of South Alabama Children's and Women's Hospital says a Mobile triplet girl could be the world's smallest surviving baby.

Oliviyanna Harbin-Page was born to 16-year-old Jamesha Harbin on
Aug. 5 after 21 to 24 weeks of gestation. She weighed just 259 grams, or 9.1 ounces. But the tiny triplet now weighs 3 pounds 2 ounces.

The other two triplet girls are identical and have graduated from their incubators and headed home with their parents.

A medical team that has been caring for the girls at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine say Oliviyanna's homecoming could be in the next few weeks.
