Red Wing, MN -

A Minnesota hospital is apologizing for mishandling a stillborn baby who was discovered at a laundry service. Regions Hospital in St. Paul says the body found in a sheet at a laundry service in Red Wing yesterday was that of a 22-week-old stillborn. The hospital says the remains had been wrapped in linens in its morgue and were mistaken for laundry that was to be sent out for cleaning. The hospital calls it a ``terrible mistake'' and is extending ``deep apologies'' to the family. It also is offering counseling to employees of the linen service.
