Hospital delivers baby but leaves the head inside pregnant mum (Body Missing) - then sends the mother to another hospital without saying a word


Baby loses its head and the doctor and the hospital are more concerned about losing face?
A shocking story of alleged medical malpractice is coming out of a hospital in the southern Thai town of Pattalung.
A 17 year old woman - named only as Poo - went in to have a baby at a hospital that was not named. 
The relatives waited nervously outside the delivery room for a long time. Eventually they were told to take the expectant mother to another hospital.
No explanation was given by the duty doctor.
The family took her to another hospital where a suction machine was used. The doctor there
discovered that only the head of the baby was in the mothers womb. Pictures were taken of the head of the infant.
The body was missing.
Shocked relatives went back to the original hospital to retrieve the torso.
Later it emerged that the duty doctor at the original hospital had pulled the baby out but had decapitated it in the process.
But then he said nothing to the relatives as they were sent elsewhere.
Daily News further discovered that following the delivery on Wednesday a public health official had offered the family 400,000 baht in compensation.
The elder sister of the mother posted pictures of the head of the baby on Facebook along with a message saying that they were absolutely shocked.
No way would they accept compensation without the hospital and doctor accepting responsibility.
The sister said that people went online to say that she was a liar and threats were made to her. She told daily News: "Who in hell would lie about such a thing?"
Relatives of the mother, who is currently recovering from the ordeal in the second hospital, that also was not named, have gone to the government's Damrongtham watchdog group to seek justice.
Meanwhile the local health chief Dr Thanit Sermkaek ordered an investigation into the matter as the hospital said such a thing had never happened before.
Daily News further reported that the doctor who allegedly decapitated the baby had gone on leave.
Relatives said that the baby had been described as normal and viable before the mother went into labor.
