African Woman Wants Doctors Jailed After She Was Delivered Only Of Her Baby’s Head… But She Was WARNED Earlier That There’s Danger

A pregnant woman was horrified when she gave birth to a decapitated baby whose body remained inside.

Kagiso Kgatla, 19, who was six months pregnant and expecting her first child, watched in terror as the baby's severed head came out.

She then reportedly had to wait another 24 hours before the rest of the baby's body was delivered. 

The teenager is now set to sue the Tambo Memorial Hospital in Boksburg, South Africa, where she suffered the gruesome ordeal. 


Speaking to South African broadcaster eNCA, she said: 'I am not okay. I am not coping at all. A doctor came and said I should push. I pushed and pushed, nothing. He inserted his hands and said I should try again but still there was nothing.

'He also said he could see the baby's head. Then he asked for those big spoons.

'That's when my baby's head came out, but only the head. The body remained inside.

'They must tell me the truth about what happened to my child. If they must be jailed, they should, for what they've put me through.' 

Ms Kgatla said medics had warned her that her baby was likely to suffer from some abnormalities.

But she had said she was willing to care for the child despite the predicted 'difficulties'. 

Hospital officials have reportedly insisted they told the mother that her baby had only a 'very small chance' of living.

The hospital's head of obstetrics, Dr Gilbert Anyetei, said: 'Normally, when the head is not crowning we assist. We call it assisted delivery.

'In this particular instance the head popped out on its own and we tried to see if the rest of the body would follow, but the rest of the body didn't follow.'

A similar case occurred in the UK in 2014 when Laura Gallazzi lost her baby son at 25 weeks pregnant.

Ms Gallazzi's baby’s head became trapped during the birth at a Dundee hospital and then became 'detached from his body'. 

In that case Dr Vaishnavy Laxman, 43, was found to have made an 'error of judgment' after a tribunal revealed she should have given the 30-year old patient an emergency Caesarean section.

She instead attempted to carry out the delivery naturally and urged the patient to push whilst herself applying traction to the baby's legs.

However a tribunal cleared Dr Laxman of misconduct and said her fitness to practise was not impaired.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
