ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota hospital apologized Wednesday for mishandling a stillborn baby whose body was found in linens that had been sent to an off-site laundry service.

Officials from Regions Hospital in St. Paul said the remains had been wrapped in linens in the hospital morgue and somehow were mistaken for laundry that was supposed to be sent out for cleaning. The body was found Tuesday by a laundry service employee.
