Mother: Pa. Hospital Would Not Transfer Infant

ALLENTOWN, Pa. — Police have charged a mother with removing her three-month-old daughter from Lehigh Valley Hospital against doctor’s orders.

April Saul maintains that she requested that her child, who needed special treatment for a heart defect, be transferred to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in October. However, Saul claims hospital officials refused even though that didn’t have the specialist she required.
