Doc­tor on call leaves mo­bile in new mum!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A BUNGLING doc­tor is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated af­ter al­legedly leav­ing his MO­BILE PHONE in­side a fe­male pa­tient’s stitched-up belly!

Hanah Karim, 36, gave birth to her son by cae­sarean sec­tion at a hos­pi­tal in Jor­dan.

But hours later fam­ily mem­bers no­ticed her stom­ach “vibrating” and she be­gan to suf­fer painful cramps.

She was X-rayed then rushed into surgery at Am­man’s Al Bashir public hos­pi­tal, where medics re­moved the gad­get.

The case has now been brought against the Jor­da­nian par­lia­ment, where crit­ics are call­ing for lead­ers to re­sign over the scan­dal.

A Health Min­istry spokesman said they were “look­ing into it” but slammed Karim’s claims as “base­less and fab­ri­cated”.
