1. Saved by scissors: Slip kept premature mite alive (By 'mite' they mean a baby born at 23 weeks)

    When she was born six months ago at just 23 weeks she was so tiny docs did not know if they should try to save her.

    But when they put her on the scales she weighed 1lb, the minimum weight for a baby to be considered viable — so they fought for her.

    Only when she was safely on a ventilator did medics discover the scissors had been accidentally left on the scales and that 8in Maddalena in fact weighed only 382g.
