Noah, the Great Survivor of Katrina

A healthy baby boy, who was a frozen embryo at the time of the hurricane Katrina floods, was delivered on Tuesday at New Orleans' Lakeland Hospital. //

The baby has been named Noah, after the great survivor. Noah Benton Markham was one among the 1400 embryos in coolant tanks, frozen in liquid nitrogen when floods hit the hospital.

The embryo-containing tanks were moved from the first floor to the third as the hurricane waters entered the hospital and rose till 8 feet and cut off the electricity.

IVF is a complicated and expensive procedure involving: administering fertility drugs, egg harvesting and in vitro fertilization and usually result in multiple embryos. The excess embryos are kept frozen to be used in successive trials. Freezing embryos saves a lot of time, money and hardship.

Rebekah Markham, 32, mother of Noah said although her first pregnancy cost $12,000, she was grateful to hold the 8 pounds, 6 1/2 ounces Noah. The mother and son are presently at St. Tammany Parish Hospital.

Noah’s 42-year-old father Glen Markham is reported to have claimed, 'It's amazing that he was frozen.'
