THE BRONX - A most unusual family reunion took place this week at Cavalry Hospital when a nurse who hadn?t seen her father in decades ended up admitting him into the hospital.

Wanda Rodriguez?s father left when she was just an infant, but when a man with the same name, Victor Peraza, was admitted into the hospital with terminal cancer, she knew exactly who it was.

Rodriguez said, ?We had such resemblance, my complexion. He's got green eyes and looks so much like me.?

Peraza says his final days couldn't be happier. He says he never imagined having the opportunity to have a reunion with his family.
