In Trinidad, a final report on the death of a baby boy during a C-section is expected to be sent to Health Minister Dr Fuad Khan this morning.

An autopsy revealed the baby’s head was cut so deeply that it penetrated the brain and damaged the tissue during the surgery performed at the Mt Hope Women’s Hospital on Carnival Saturday.

The parents are now demanding answers about why their son died.

Chairman of the North-Central Regional Health Authority Dr Shehenaz Mohammed says a report has been prepared by the hospital’s quality coordinator and would be forwarded to the health minister.
