Mom Says Baby Tossed Out With Laundry

Kourtney McGee was on medication and barely remembers holding her son, Jacob, minutes after he died at birth.

So McGee and her family began planning the baby's funeral. But the body couldn't be found. In a lawsuit her attorney says that for 19 hours the baby was missing, until the hospital staff at Huguley Memorial Medical Center in Fort Worth realized it.

"They told us that the baby, that the cleaning lady was sent up there later that day and I guess she didn't recognize there was a baby wrapped in a blanket and she put him in the laundry and he was shipped off," McGee said.

The funeral director says boy's body was picked up from a commercial laundry facility.
