PALOS HEIGHTS, Ill. (WLS) -- Patients at a southwest suburban hospital were relocated after bats were found inside.

The bats were found Thursday inside the OB unit at Palos Community Hospital.

Patients in that unit were relocated while the bats were caught.

The hospital says the bats got inside when construction crews were working.

The bats were turned over to animal control for testing.
