A Pottstown woman charged with removing her baby from an Allentown hospital against doctor's orders said Monday she was just trying to do right by the baby, who needed special treatment for a heart defect.
April Saul said Lehigh Valley Hospital repeatedly refused her request to transfer her daughter to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for treatment of the heart defect.
A prosecutor disputed her account later Monday and accused her and the baby's father of endangering the baby's welfare. Police filed charges last week against Saul and her fiance, Daniel Rivera, for removing 3-month-old Aralynn from Lehigh Valley's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit without permission. - AP
