WTF? Missouri Doctor Decapitates Baby During Birth. Tries To Cover It Up By Shoving It Back Inside Mother & Performs C-Section. Couple Suing.

 

A Missouri couple is suing their doctor after he decapitated their baby during birth, then tried to cover it up by shoving the baby back inside the mother's birth canal and performing an emergency c-section.

 

Arteisha Betts and Travis Ammonette, of Florissant, filed a 10-count complaint in St. Louis County Circuit Court last month against Dr. Gilbert Webb, Dr. Susan Moore, Midwest Maternal & Fetal Medicine Services and Signature Medical Group.


The couple claims they were told by Moore in February 2011 that the baby would have to be delivered by caesarian because his abdomen was too large for a normal birth, according to the New York Daily News.


Betts went into labor 28 weeks into what is normally a 40-week pregnancy.

 

When the couple arrived at St. John's Mercy Medical Center in March 2011, Dr. Webb refused to perform a C-section.

The complaint indicates Webb "would not agree" to the Cesarean and "would only agree to deliver her baby by way of attempted trial of vaginal delivery," according to Florissant.Patch.com.

 

"Believing that she had no other choice than to agree to a trial of vaginal delivery, plaintiff Arteisha Betts consented to a trial of vaginal delivery under duress and protest," according to the complaint.

 

During the procedure the baby's head delivered in the first stage, but in the second stage his body got stuck. Webb applied pressure trying to pull the baby out and "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 Betts and Ammonette," according to the complaint.

 

In an attempt to cover up what he had done, Webb pushed the baby back inside Betts' birth canal and called for an emergency C-section. Webb was in such a hurry he started cutting Betts' stomach before the anesthesia had fully kicked in causing her great pain and suffering.

 

During the C-section Webb "surgically and completely removedthe baby's head from his neck and torso. Webb then tried to cover up the baby's wounds before handing him to his parents, but it's not clear in the complaint how he did this.

 

Betts got a tattoo of her sons hand prints honoring him.

 

The couple accuses the defendants of wrongful death and negligence and is seeking unspecified damages.

I can't believe this s***. Really you are supposed to be able to trust people in these positions and even though he didn't mean to do it, they told him it had to be c-section but he thinks he knows better? That's arrogance of the highest order and he will suffer a life sentence of guilt.

this is just crazy and it has nothing to do with race. It has to do with a DUMBASS DOCTOR! Money can't bring back a child but they will be MILLIONAIRES when they have their other child.

You guys calling racist are absolutely out of your minds...This in no means was done on purpose because no doctor is willing to loose his license over something as horrific as that especially.. none of you know exactly what happens.. there are complications at birth always. and you guys don't understand that when only the head pops out and nothing else the baby is sooo young.. 28 weeks!!!! that is beyond premature.. that baby s body is soooo fragile its like an egg any bones can crack so easily.. I'm not defending this doctor because at first what he did was an accident, but the cover up he tried to pull was beyond stupid, because you not only killed the baby and knew it, but then you put the women through excruciating pain for no reason because he definitely knew the kid was already dead. so hell deff loose his license if not be jailed i think.. I feel soo sorry for the mother and father,, and if he didn't try to cover it up i'd feel bad for the dr because nobody wants to kill a child and ruin the parents life like that.. so stop saying he's racist.. he is definitely an IDIOT for trying to cover it up rather then just admit the accident had happened and the kids head was separated from the spine.. it happens guys.. you just don't hear about it because the dumb a** tried to cover it up!!! RIP little man.. didn't even get a chance in this cruel world.!!

"No, I didn't cancel the Super Bowl. I have a live concert deal already exclusively with Live Nation and Tidal. Maybe down the line when my contract is up. I might do the Super Bowl but for now my business endeavours are all tied up now."
