Parents take body home for burial

Thirty year old Elvira Ack and her husband thirty year old Lawrence Bol are both mourning the loss of their first child. Forty-eight hours after giving birth on Friday, July twelfth, her baby girl died. It was traumatic not only for the parents but for a country that is still waiting for justice following the negligence of the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital for the thirteen neo-natal unit deaths that occurred in May. According to the hospital, baby Lorena Bol died from complications unrelated to the entobacter strain, but the struggling family from Toledo needs help from the public. News Five spoke to Lawrence Bol as he picked up the body of his child at the KHMH morgue this morning.
