Question of the Day
Six rescued on Potomac River
Six swimmers were rescued yesterday in the Potomac River.
The Montgomery County fire department received a call about 4 p.m. regarding a woman and man distressed in the river near Sherwin Island. Another call then came in about four people clinging to rocks near the river’s Virginia shore. It’s not clear how they got into trouble.
A 17-year-old boy was sent to the hospital for evaluation. A county spokesman said the group of six likely went swimming during a hike along the river.
Nigerian woman has quadruplets
A Nigerian woman gave birth to an unusual set of quadruplets.
The babies were delivered by Caesarean section. The girls weighed slightly more than 2 pounds, and the boys weighed slightly more than 3 pounds each.
Hospital officials said Mrs. Itula, a teacher, came to Owings Mills in December to visit her sister when she found out she was pregnant. She was advised to stay in the United States because of health concerns. Her husband, Frederick Itula, arrived in Baltimore from Nigeria late Saturday. The couple has no other children, and Mrs. Itula had been taking fertility drugs.
The babies are being treated at the neonatal intensive-care unit at Sinai and are doing fine. The family is expected to return to Nigeria when doctors say it is safe for them to travel.
