NYC medical examiner probes stillborn mix-up
NYC medical examiner probes stillborn mix-up after Brooklyn couple buries wrong baby in Poland
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) The New York City medical examiner's office says it is responsible for an error that resulted in a Brooklyn family burying someone else's stillborn in their native Poland.

Justyna and Rafal Sliwa (SLEE'-wuh) told the New York Post (http://nyp.st/QxDbyY ) they were notified of the mix-up July 6.

They held a memorial service in Brooklyn on June 16 for a stillborn they believed to be theirs. The funeral home sent the remains to the couple's hometown of Lomza, Poland. A funeral was held there June 19.



Information on the other family was not made public. A spokeswoman for the medical examiner's office, Ellen Borakove, says the babies had "strikingly similar names."

The office is investigating how the mix-up occurred.

Borakove calls it a "tragic, unfortunate error we have to make right."
