Doctors Insulate Premature Baby with Sandwich Bag

Lexi Lacey was born premature with a birthweight of 14 ounces. Doctors gave her just a ten percent chance of survival. But she improved -- in part because of a sandwich bag that doctors are using as an insulating jacket:

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.

Lexi is now back at home with her parents.
