As reported by Gulf News, Hanan Mahmoud Abdul Karim, a 36-year-old Jordanian pregnant woman went to a private hospital for a C-section. But when she came home, after the operation, her family have noticed that her stomach was vibrating.
Majeda Abdul Hamid, patient’s mom, told local media that her daughter gave birth to a 4.8kg boy (10.5 lbs) and as all appeared to be well, she was sent home from the hospital. But later, she claimed that her family noticed her stomach vibrating and she began suffering terrible pain.
My daughter suffered serious pains and could not move. I brought her back to the hospital where she was treated but nothing was done for her.”
Hanan was then allegedly rushed to the casualty department of Al Bashir public hospital, where X-rays revealed, a foreign object inside her abdomen. Hence, the surgeons quickly performed an operation in order to remove the phone in her belly. Karim’s mother also claimed that a speedy procedure was conducted to extract the object.
Due to that lawful incident, her case was brought up in the Jordanian parliament, where parliament member Salim Al Bataynah called on the Jordanian government to resign because of the scandal. He said,
In countries which show respect to their nations, and following such scandals, governments usually resign. The parliament should show responsibility and be on the level of the case.”
However, according to the Jordanian Health Ministry spokesman, Hatem Al Azrae, Hanan’s story was ‘baseless and a fabricated one’, added that the ministry is following it. Although, it wasn’t clear if any action was taken since the case went public, the Jordanian Health Ministry is reportedly paying close attention as the story unravels.
