On New Year's Eve, at the stroke of midnight, New York's first baby of 2024 was born. According to NY Daily News, the doctor who delivered the baby, helped the father of the newborn to be born 23 years ago.

Dr. Sherman Dunn of South Brooklyn Health in Coney Island had no prior knowledge of this set of circumstances. Only later did he learn that 23 years ago, in the same hospital, he helped the baby’s father, Rafael Abitbol, ​​be born.

“He told me I delivered his mother,” Dunn said. “Even though my mother was here, she didn’t come up to me and didn’t talk about it.” He told me about it after.”

As the countdown to 2024 began, everyone in the delivery room, from doctors, nurses to the baby's parents, knew full well that the baby had a good chance of becoming the first birth of the new year in the city's public hospital system.

“We had the TV on with the ball in Times Square, and everyone was watching the ball come down,” Dunn says. “They were counting down on TV, and the mother was also pushing. When midnight arrived, the mother exerted all her strength and the baby was born, Dunn said.

“It was a lot of fun,” said third-year student Betty Varghese, who was present at the birth. “There was a lot of energy and excitement in the delivery room, a lot of anticipation.”

This marks the fifth year in a row that South Brooklyn Health has delivered its first baby of the year, according to NYC Health + Hospitals. The city's health care system includes 11 hospitals in five communities. Baby Abitbol weighing 3 kilograms 500 grams and his mother are doing well.

Another coincidence: the nurse caring for the newborn turned out to work for the father's pediatrician. “I took care of him and his brothers and sisters for about 20 years,” said nurse Anna Kolobinsky. “Now I take care of his child.”
