Inmates Deliver Fellow Prisoner's Baby

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Officials say inmates delivered a baby after a fellow prisoner went into labor and was apparently turned away at a corrections facility's clinic.

Andrea Dean is a spokeswoman for the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. She says the 32-year-old, Dayton-area woman gave birth to a boy Wednesday morning in a dormitory room at the Franklin Pre-Release Center. Dean says everybody is doing well. The inmate hasn't been identified.

Deans says the woman told nurses at the clinic she was in labor but was apparently dismissed and sent back to her room.
