As superstorm Sandy slammed into New York City Monday night, more than 10 feet of water flooded seven buildings of the NYU Langone Medical Center. The facility lost power at the height of the storm. Doctors, nurses and hospital staff sought to evacuate about 300 patients that night. And some of the tiniest evacuees -- 20 newborn babies clinging to life in the neonatal intensive care unit -- were the most at risk.

New mom Jo-An Tremblay-Shepherd said, "The power went off completely, and all of the monitors, you're seeing all these monitors here, and there's a lot of buzzing and whatnot and everything just went."
Tremblay-Shepherd's son, Jackson, born 27 weeks prematurely, was carried in the dark by a nurse who also held his oxygen tank.
"We had to go down nine flights of stairs that were wet and had adult patients lying on the floors in like stretchers," Tremblay-Shepherd recalled. "It was pretty crazy, and all this in complete darkness."VIDEO AT LINK.
