Nurse Drops Newborn At Hospital, Fracturing His Skull
Authorities in Pennsylvania say a nurse has dropped a newborn boy at a hospital, fracturing his skull. The babys mother says a doctor told her the nurse was "drowsy." The hospital and Uniontown police say the 30-year veteran nurse at Uniontown Hospital was holding the baby at about 6 a.m. Tuesday when he fell from her grasp. Mother Jacqueline Hunt tells WPXI-TV that a pediatrician told her the nurse was feeding and burping her 1-day-old son "and she was drowsy and fell asleep and dropped him."
