New mother 'cut in two' after hospital lift malfunctions

New mother 'cut in two' after hospital lift malfunctions

It is thought the lift at the Virgen del Valme hospital in Seville started moving upwards before the stretcher was fully inside. Minutes after giving birth, a new mom was killed when a hospital elevator malfunctioned as she was being wheeled to her recovery room. The doors just opened and closed, but nothing happened. As the auto unexpectedly rose, part of her body remained outside the elevator doors. "This cannot continue. Today it has been Rocio, but tomorrow it could be another person".

Speaking to local daily Diario de Sevilla, she described her panic on arriving at the hospital to hear there had been an accident.

It is understood that her head was trapped between the lift frame and roof as it started moving upwards with her feet left dangling in the lift shift.

It took firefighters about two hours to reach her body.

But in this case the tot was being transferred to another hosptial as she is suffering from a heart condition. Her parents learned of her death when they came to visit her that afternoon. "They told me that a girl had died, and then they confirmed that she was my daughter".

Nunez and Rocio have three daughters.

Witnesses said Nunez's bed was on the elevator going up to the maternity ward, but the elevator wasn't going up.

Rocio was mother to daughters Carmen, five and Rocio, four, and had just given birth to a third daughter, Triana - who only narrowly escaped the same fate.

Health Minister, Marina Alvarez, announced an investigation has been opened after confirming that the elevator had passed previous inspections.
