Baby accidentally given to wrong couple reunited with real parents - BBC News 5
A couple who were given the wrong baby by a hospital in El Salvador a year ago, have finally been allowed to travel home with the correct child. Rich Cushworth - who is British - and his wife, Mercedes - were only given a birth certificate for their son Moses a few days ago. They landed back home in Dallas, Texas this week where they have been speaking exclusively to our correspondent Matthew Price.

There’s something so pure about the mother’s energy. Just loving and radiating good energy.

Mothers instinct is very strong we need to stop letting people tell us different. I still have strong instinctive feelings even for my grandkids.

Shouldn’t they have a wrist band around the baby angles once they are born to prevent this confusion.

The original baby looks like a different race! I can’t see how this would happen! Hospital needs sued!

I hoped both family’s looked for legal actions against the hospital. The hospital needs to face repercussions for their actions

She is such a sweet and loving mother. She still unconditionally loved the other baby like her own even after she found out the baby wasn't her's. 😢

Babies should be banded with their mother as soon as they are born...it’s the law. If they are sectioned they get banded before they leave the OR.
