Utah woman gives birth to 1 1/2-pound baby on cruise ship; tiny boy beats odds to survive


SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah woman who unexpectedly gave birth on a cruise ship months before her due date says she wrapped towels around the 1 1/2-pound boy and, with the help of medical staff, managed to keep him alive until the ship reached port.

Emily Morgan, of Ogden, said Thursday that doctors didn't expect her son Haiden to live, but thanks to strong lungs, a makeshift incubator and an early arrival in Puerto Rico, the baby made it. He's now receiving care at a neonatal intensive care unit in Miami.
