Stupid Headline Alert

Can you tell me what's wrong with this headline?
Embryo Saved From Flood Is Now a Boy
The story is pretty cool, but... the headline is just ridiculous.
Rescued from a great flood while he was just a frozen embryo in liquid nitrogen, a baby boy entered the world Tuesday and was named after the most famous flood survivor of them all, Noah.

Noah Benton Markham - 8 pounds, 6 1/2 ounces - was born to 32-year-old Rebekah Markham by Caesarean section after growing from an embryo that nearly defrosted in a sweltering hospital during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Like I said, awesome story. Stupid journalist(JANET McCONNAUGHEY), but I'm being redundant.

Janet, ... can I call you Janet? That baby was always a boy, even when he was just a glimmer in Daddy's eye living in his LN2 waterbed, he was male. Breathing air instead of amniotic fluid does not make him a boy- being conceived made him a boy. From the day that the scientists said, "sperm, meet egg... get to know each other," he's been a boy, with all the right parts and pieces that make him a boy.

But... that being said... welcome to life on the outside, Noah!
