ONTARIO – As residents turned in for the night after a night of New Years libations and celebrations, Saint Alphonsus Medical Center in Ontario welcomed the first baby born in 2019.

About three hours and 54 minutes after midnight, 23-year-old Berenise Salgado and 29-year-old Lorenzo Fuentes of Nyssa welcomed their new son at the Ontario hospital.
