A mom and dad accused of taking their baby out of Lehigh Valley Hospital against doctors' orders have pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges.

April Saul and Daniel Rivera each pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child.

Prosecutors say the couple took their daughter out of Lehigh Valley Hospital last October even though doctors say the child was too sick to be discharged.

Saul and Rivera said they wanted to take the baby to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
