WINNIPEG -- Officials at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg are trying to figure out how a
circumcision was performed on the wrong baby.
As a results of the mistake, the hospital has suspended circumcisions of male newborns.
Spokeswoman Helene Vrignon says she can't release details.
She says the identities of two baby boys on the same ward were mixed-up.
Vrignon says the family of the boy who was incorrectly circumcised hadn't decided
whether to have the procedure done.
No medical staff have been disciplined so far.
