Iowa newborn in intensive care at Mayo Clinic after she was hit by a softball

Posted: Updated:

A 7-week-old baby is receiving treatment for skull fractures and brain bleeds at Mayo Clinic Saint Marys Hospital.

A softball hit the newborn in the head at her father's game. 

The overthrown softball struck McKenna Hovenga and her mom, Kassy, as they watched the game last Wednesday in Shell Rock, Iowa.

Responders took her to a local hospital, then flew her to Mayo Clinic. 

A post on the Healing for McKenna Facebook page said that doctors have started to wean McKenna off her seizure medication.
