"You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery," said Dr. Gary Steinman, who delivered Iris Borges' four daughters by Caesarean section at Long Island Jewish Medical Center on Friday. The infants, born seven weeks premature, weighed between 2 pounds, 1 ounce and 3 pounds, 3 ounces. Borges and the children were hospitalized in good condition.
