'Fridge suit' saved our baby

A baby whose heart stopped for eight minutes has stunned medics to make a full recovery.

Willow Rose from Worcester was delivered by emergency C-section and had to be resuscitated at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

She was put in a refrigeration suit and taken to St Michael's Hospital, Bristol, where specialist teams cooled her body for three days to prevent brain damage.

Fifteen months on she's made a full recovery and relieved parents Martin and Bex Forrest said "we're just so thankful Willow pulled through".
