Baby delivered by staff at Cern

CERNBaby Lorenzo’s father (left) as the drama unfolded

A baby boy was born outside the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (Cern) last month, the organisation has reported.

The baby’s parents were driving to hospital when they realised medical assistance would be required sooner rather than later.

So they pulled over outside the world’s largest physics laboratory.

Cern is famously home to the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), an enormously powerful atomic particle accelerator.

The LHC is exploring some of the fundamental questions in “big physics” by colliding proton particles together in a huge underground facility – and staff were equally equipped to handle the more traditional processes associated with child-birth.

“Our medical service and ambulance personnel proved to be entirely up to the task,” said Cern in its web bulletin.

The laboratory’s own medical unit and fire service supervised the delivery of baby Lorenzo, it explained.

“In all my 20 years at Cern, I’ve seen many things, but this is a first,” said Veronique Fassnacht, Head of the Cern Medical Service.

Lorenzo’s father Mario di Castro is a research fellow at the laboratory.

“Everything happened very fast but went incredibly smoothly,” he said.

One of Cern’s areas of expertise is Hadron particles, which are essential building blocks of the universe.

“Hadrons, it should be noted, usually come in multiplets,” Cern added. “Perhaps best not to tell the parents”.
