ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A Minnesota hospital is apologizing for mishandling a stillborn baby whose body was discovered in linens at a laundry service.

Regions Hospital in St. Paul says the body found at a laundry service facility in Red Wing was that of a 22-week-old baby. The hospital says the remains had been wrapped in linens in its morgue and were mistaken for laundry that was supposed to be sent out for cleaning.
The hospital calls it a "terrible mistake" and says it is expending "deep apologies" to the family. Hospital officials also say they are offering support and counseling to employees of the linen service.

Red Wing is about 45 miles southeast of St. Paul.
