Premature baby kept warm in sandwich bag

28th September 2010

Doctors at Worcestershire Royal Hospital saved the life of a severely premature baby girl by using a 15cm plastic bag to help to insulate her.

Lexi Lacey was 14 weeks premature, weighed only 14 ounces and was given a 10% chance of survival. Her mother Chelsea Rowberry, 17, said: ''The doctors told us they had never known a baby born as prematurely as Lexi survive. She was so tiny the only thing they had to keep her body temperature warm was a sandwich bag from the hospital canteen - it's incredible to think that saved her life."
