Stillborn Child Mix-Up

"A woman who delivered a stillborn child claims in a lawsuit that a hospital released the wrong body to a funeral home for cremation and took more than a month to inform her of the mix-up. Jordan Engelhardt, of Flint, said in a lawsuit filed in Oakland County Circuit Court that she learned last January that an urn of ashes on the mantel of her home did not contain the remains of her son, Maxxwell Sebastian Engelhardt. Engelhardt said she and her husband received a call from an employee of North Oakland Medical Center informing her of the mixup. It came while Sebastian's twin sister, was hospitalized. Both babies were premature." By Associated Press, N. Y. Times, Link to Article (last visited 12-4-06 NVS)
