The woman underwent an abortion and the baby, weighing 610 grams, was extracted from her womb without a pulse, hospital officials said. A senior doctor pronounced the baby dead and she was transferred to the cooler. Five hours later, the woman's husband came to the hospital to take what he thought was his dead baby girl for burial.
