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."
