Awaiting death certificate, Peru woman kept dead child in family refrigerator; heres more
Awaiting death certificate, a woman in Peru was left with no option but to keep the body of her dead baby in a home based freezer.
This after the hospital told her to keep the body until she had a death certificate.
Woman identified as Monica Palomino said her baby was born prematurely last Saturday after a gestation of only 25 weeks and died on Monday.
But under pressure from security personnel at Lima’s Sergio Bernales hospital, she had to take the body home until she could begin the process of getting a death certificate.
Meanwhile, the child’s body remained in the freezer of the family refrigerator. On the door she placed a sign that says, “Do Not Touch.”
Hospital director Julio Silva said Wednesday it would investigate the woman’s complaint. >
