PHILADELPHIA (CBS)-  A zoo in Kansas is welcoming a newborn orangutan with open arms.

The baby was fast asleep in a nurse’s arms when it started to hiccup.

The orangutan’s mother, Daisy, went into labor on September 6th but had some complications.

Doctors delivered the baby via c-section and are now monitoring the baby while Daisy recovers.
