GIRLS SWITCHED AT BIRTH ARE RETURNED TO PARENTS

Baby girls who were accidentally switched at a hospital right after birth were returned to their natural parents four months later, attorneys said.

The girls were returned at a psychologist's office Tuesday in Greeneville, Tenn., but not without a lot of pain for the parents, Jack Burkhard, a lawyer for one of the families, said Thursday."It was traumatic," he said. "Even the lawyers had tears in their eyes."

The families were not identified.
