Newborn girl weighed as much as apple

SAN DIEGO—When she was born, the baby girl weighed about the same as an apple.

A San Diego hospital yesterday revealed the birth of the girl and said she is believed to be the world's tiniest surviving micro-preemie, who weighed just 8.6 ounces (245 grams) when she was born in December.

The girl was born 23 weeks and three days into her mother's 40-week pregnancy.
