hoverboard fires suspected to be caused by lithium batteries we've seen happening recently. two 747s have crashed, the packes of batteries they carried suspected of contributing. that's why the national transportation safety board is also out with a recommendation -- that if batteries are carried, they are separate from other flammable materials and the number of batteries be restricted. airline pilots want even more -- that the batteries be listed as hazardous. >> we cannot continue to lose these airplanes due to fires that are uncontained and q qckly bring an airplane down. >> reporter: major u.s. carriers don't allow the shipments of lithium batteries, but that's not true for all airlines, which is why the faa is calling on those carriers to study the risks of carrying this potentially dangerous cargo. david? >> david kerley at reagan national for us. david, thank you. we turn now to a stunning medical error. a new mom who says she thought her newborn was being taken for a routine checkup. instead, she was taken into surgery, the doctor operating on

having trouble nursing. >> there is no excuse for operating on the wrong baby. none. tonight, the hospital says it can't get into specifics because of privacy laws, but says they "take e riously any concerns brought to our attention." the family's lawyer tells us the doctor did apologize, but says for the procedure. davivi >> that's incredible. steve osusuami tonight. thank you. there is still much more ahead on "world news tonight" this wednesday. stolen social security numbers, more than 400,000 of them, used to try to claim tax refunds. and we'll have late developments. also, the consumer headline about your credit cards tonight. fees you don't need to be paying. and one simple step that finds them for you. also, the common hanging lamps in your home that could fall and cause gyres. and look at this. the elderly couple hit by a rogue wave. nearly washed out too sea. the rush to get everyone back on land. incredible.
