Bradley County has welcomed the community’s first baby born into the 2014 New Year.
She is little McKenzie Mae Wood, born on New Year’s Day at 2:26 a.m. at SkyRidge Medical Center. Born to parents Bonnie Wood and Michael Zukoski, Bradley County’s newest addition came about three weeks early and weighed only 4 pounds, 1 ounce at birth, and is 17 inches long. Hospital staff confirmed early this morning both mom and baby are doing well.
As part of the Cleveland Daily Banner’s New Year’s Baby tradition, a full family photograph will be published, but this cannot be done until little McKenzie is released from the hospital.
A timetable for the baby’s release is not yet known, according to Stephanie Austin who coordinates public information at SkyRidge.
