UK woman paid 62,000 pounds after hospital kills unborn son

From the story:
A mum unaware she was pregnant has been awarded £62,000 compensation by a hospital which aborted her unborn baby son.

Hospital staff failed to realise Suzanne Doherty was 14 weeks’ pregnant when she went in for a hysterectomy and it was too late to save the baby.

Suzanne, who has three daughters, said: “Knowing we could have had a son was devastating.

“I was told the operation had been a success, but a foetus had been discovered and terminated.

“It shouldn’t happen in this day and age. There are so many checks. It shouldn’t get to the point where a pregnancy was missed.”

“The money will never bring my son back.”

Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro admitted liability and a “catalogue of errors”.
