Kamloops Mounties had to intercept a vehicle fleeing Royal Inland Hospital with a newborn baby in a bizarre incident this week. 

Police aren't saying much about it but just before 2 a.m. April 14, the infant was removed from the hospital against medical advice "related to the baby's survival," said Kamloops RCMP spokesperson Const. Crystal Evelyn in a news release. 

Police stopped a vehicle and provided medical assistance to the newborn until paramedics arrived, she said. 

“Thanks to the partnerships between police and those in both the health and family services sectors, including B.C. Emergency Health Services, the newborn was located and safely returned to the medical facility, as required to help assist in the infant’s survival,” Evelyn said. “At last check, the baby was in stable condition and the appropriate family supports were engaged.”

Many important details are missing from the release but Evelyn said no further information would be released.
