HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) - The seven-week-old baby seriously injured last week in Hannibal is doing much better, according to a family member.

Kim Britt said Monday afternoon that her granddaughter, Nora, was showing progress. Doctors removed the air ventilator Monday morning and as long as there are no setbacks, Britt said she could be taken out of intensive care Tuesday.
