Honduran woman delivers stillborn baby


MCALLEN, Texas — A detained Honduran woman delivers a stillborn baby. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say the Honduran woman was detained on Monday for improper entry. She was medically screened at the McAllen Processing Center.

Authorities determined she needed to be transported to a local hospital, where medical staff were unable to detect a fetal heartbeat. She delivered a stillborn shortly thereafter. Local 23 News has reached out to CBP but have not heard back as of yet.
