Million dollar baby: Canadians handed huge bill after birth

A Canadian couple are facing a bill of almost $1m (£638,000) from an American hospital, because their daughter was born prematurely while they were on holiday in Hawaii.

New mum Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel says her travel insurance company has refused to cover the costs.

It claims a bladder infection, not declared by the family before the trip, was a pre-existing condition.
