Skooter reports 02/24/13

A 20-year-old woman in Toronto, Canada who had not revealed to her mother she was pregnant, complained of stomach cramps and told her mother she needed to go to the hospital. Before they made the walk in temperatures of 3 degrees Fahrenheit to Humber River Regional Hospital, unexpectedly the baby arrived and was delivered on a roadway without vital signs. Immediately 911 was called and Toronto EMS rushed the mother and baby to the hospital where the newborn was unhappily pronounced dead.

Per hospital practice, two Toronto police officers were detailed to stay in the room with the baby who was obscured with a sheet covering, while waiting for the coroner to arrive. However 90 minutes later, the officers saw the covering sheet moving and immediately informed the hospital staff. The medical staff worked swiftly and now both baby and mother are in stable condition.

After the incident the hospital issued a statement saying that they are reviewing, “…all aspects of care provided in this case, including the extensive resuscitation efforts by hospital physicians and staff beginning in the ambulance itself when it arrived at the hospital."

Even though more investigation is required, it is believed that hypothermia could have been the caused which may have made vital signs very difficult to detect.
