7-Week-Old Baby Struck In Head By Softball Recovering At Mayo Clinic

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- A 7-week-old baby is recovering at the Mayo Clinic after a softball hit her in the head.

It happened last Wednesday during her father's softball game in Shell Rock, Iowa. A medic helicopter rushed McKenna Hovenga to Rochester for skull fractures and brain bleeds.

Doctors have her on a feeding tube as they work to stabilize her seizures. On Tuesday, McKenna had her first seizure in more than four days.
