JOHANNESBURG - A young Boksburg mother is looking for answers after her baby was born in three separate parts.
19-year-old Kagiso Kgatla accuses Tambo Memorial Hospital in Boksburg of medical negligence.
During labour, only her baby boy's head came out, having been severed from his body.
“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”.
Kgatla – who was 6 months pregnant at the time - has told eNCA doctors had informed her the baby had some abnormalities.
But she was prepared for bringing up a child with difficulties.
eNCA reporter Masego Rahlaga filed the report in the video above.
