A 36-year-old woman experienced serious complications during the labor and delivery of her son. Her child was "unusually large" and became stuck within the birth canal. The infant was without oxygen for 10 minutes. To free the infant, the physician used a vacuum extraction tool to forcibly remove the baby. This led to the tearing of a bundle of nerves in the child's shoulder, permanently injuring his arm. The lack of oxygen contributed to brain injuries so severe the child is unlikely to live independently.
Kentucky is a state that is certainly no stranger to the summer heat. When the thermometer begins to climb, families get creative when looking for ways to beat the heat.

Due to the increased speed and crowded lanes, there is often no time to avoid dangerous debris in the road.
