The Chinese authority has reportedly suspended two hospital workers after a pregnant woman committed suicide during labour because she couldn’t have a Caesarean section.
In a case that shocked the world, the expectant mother, named Ma Rongrong, allegedly jumped from the hospital’s fifth-floor window on August 31 because she couldn’t bear the pain anymore.
The hospital reportedly denied her a C-section, an operation known to carry many risks. But doctors said the woman’s family turned down the opportunity to relieve her of the pain.
A special investigation team announced today that the person in charge of the hospital in Yulin city, Shaanxi Province, and its head gynaecologist had been removed from their positions, according to People’s Daily Online.
