Chattanooga's first baby of 2016 born minutes after midnight

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Chattanooga's first baby was born just minutes after kicking of the New Year.

Erlanger spokeswoman Pat Charles tells Channel 3, baby Lucy came into the world at Erlanger East at 12:06 a.m.

Charles says while it's not unusual for babies to be born in the early morning hours of New Year's Day, it is, however, very rare a baby is born so close to midnight.

Lucy is a healthy baby girl and weighs about 6 pounds.

Charles says she is her parents' first child and the family couldn't be more excited.

We'll post a picture of Lucy as soon as one becomes available.

Hear more about her arrival tonight on Eyewitness News at 6.
