On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy and Stone Weinstock both arrived in New York City, with the hurricane inflicting destruction upon parts of the city and NYU Langone Medical Center. Yet, in the midst of a blackout and before the hospital was forced to evacuate, newborn Stone Weinstock came into the world on the labor and delivery floor.
In this video, watch Stone's parents and grandmother and NYU Langone experts discuss the miracle of his birth.
"What I always think about labor and delivery here at NYU Langone is that it's a celebration," says William Schweizer , vice chair and obstetrical chief for obstetrics and gynecology. "Here was a delivery that was stripped down to the bare basics—baby, mother, father—and everything was really very natural and very wonderful."
