COLUMBUS, Ohio – Officials in Ohio say a frozen pipe has burst at Akron Children's Hospital, flooding part of the emergency room and the intensive care unit for infants.
Hospital spokeswoman Laurie Schueler says in a statement that the sprinkler system pipe burst early Saturday.
She says the hospital staff had to move 39 babies out of the neonatal intensive care unit and into other parts of the hospital.
No injuries were reported and the hospital is treating patients as usual.
Urgent patients are being directed to parts of the emergency department that haven't been flooded.
Hospital officials are still assessing the extent of damage.
