: A young African American couple Arteisha Betts and Travis Ammonettesuffered the most DISTRURBING form of medical malpractice that you can imagine - the doctor RIPPED THEIR BABYS HEAD OFF during child birth!!! But what happened next - was even MORE DESPICABLE!!!
The story is truly horrifying. It all started out when the couple visited their obstetrician, Dr. Susan Moore, who advised Arteisha that she would need a cesarean section because her baby had an unusually large abdomen.
A few weeks later, Arteisha went into pre-term labor (at 28 weeks) and was rushed to the hospital, where the doctor there, a Dr. Gilbert Webb, refused to deliver the baby by cesarean section. Arteisha said that Dr. Webb also refused to allow them to go to another hospital.
Here's what happened next, according to the complaint:
Defendant Webb applied sufficient traction to the axilla and head of decedent Kaden Travis Ammonette during Webb's attempt to deliver decedent vaginally that defendant Webb separated decedent Kaden Travis Ammonette's head from his cervical spine.
When defendant Webb separated decedent Kaden Travis Ammonette's head from his cervical spine, decedent's body was still inside Arteisha Betts' birth canal.
When defendant Webb separated decedent Kaden Travis Ammonette's head from his cervical spine, blood from the arteries and veins in decedent's neck shot out, splattered and/or spilled out into the labor and delivery room in plain view of and in close proximity to plaintiffs Arteisha Betts and Travis Ammonette.
At the time that defendant Webb separated decedent Kaden Travis Ammonette's head from his cervical spine, plaintiff Travis Ammonette was approximately 2 to 4 feet from his son's head.
And to try and cover up his tracks, Dr. Webb then "pushed" the baby's "head and body back into plaintiff Arteisha Betts' birth canal" and called for an emergency cesarean section.
