Woman gives birth to stillborn baby then dies

A 19-year-old Saudi wife prematurely gave birth to a stillborn baby and died moments later at hospital despite attempts by doctors to revive her.

The woman was rushed to hospital in the southern province of Jazan after going into premature labour and doctors said they had to drug her for delivery.

“The baby was already dead when she delivered….after a while, she suffered from heart complications and died,” Sharq newspaper said.

It said a medical panel is investigating her death after her husband refused to receive her body, blaming the hospital for her demise.
