LAS VEGAS -- The Clark County Coroners office ruled Wednesday two fetuses found in hospital laundry were delivered prematurely and died naturally.
Spring Valley Hospital released a statement about the incident Tuesday:
“After suffering a miscarriage at another location, the patient arrived via EMS with twin, early gestational, deceased twin fetuses. The fetuses had already been wrapped in linen prior to arrival at the hospital,” said Gretchen Papez, Director of PR & Media Relations for The Valley Health System. “We are currently reviewing the situation to determine what occurred. However, the remains are currently in the hospital's possession, and we are working with the family at this time.”
Employees with the Angelica Corporation who clean medical linens discovered the fetuses around 10 a.m. Tuesday and contacted police.
