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

Regions Hospital officials said the body found in a sheet by a laundry service employee was that of a baby who was stillborn at 22 weeks development. In a statement, the hospital said the remains had been wrapped in linens in its morgue and were mistaken for laundry that was to be sent out for cleaning.
