Baby Caitlin kept chilled to save her life

A baby girl, from Lancashire, was put into an induced state of hypothermia as doctors battled to save her life after her brain was starved of oxygen at birth. Caitlin Kellie-Jones was taken from her parents and put in special cooling wrap as soon as she was delivered.
