A Houston-area couple welcomed sextuplets, but within days one of the premature babies died. A spokeswoman at The Woman's Hospital of Texas in Houston told The Associated Press on Friday that the five surviving Stansel infants remained in intensive care.

Aimee Braswell declined to release further information on the status of the four girls and one boy born Tuesday night to Amanda and Thomas Stansel of Humble.

The family's Web site says a boy, named Dallin Cory, died Thursday morning, but "all the other children are still fighting hard." The surviving children are named Kaitlyn Amanda, Ashlyn Louise, Rachel Diane, Haley Karin Stansel and Braden Thomas Stansel.

An earlier hospital statement said the sextuplets ranged in weight from 12.3 ounces to 1 pound, 1.2 ounces at birth.
