Medical Center delivered sextuplets to a Columbus couple on Wednesday afternoon.
They were the first children born to Mia and Rozonno McGhee, 10TV News reported.
The couple had tried for five years to conceive, then got help through fertility drugs.
Rozonno McGhee watched as a staff of about 50 doctors, nurses and specialists delivered his four
sons and two daughters.
"I can't believe this. I cannot believe this," Rozonno McGhee said. "This is so this is not real

The surviving babies are expected to stay in the neonatal intensive care unit for three
