Pregnant woman gives birth in wheelchair but her baby dies after being dragged along floor because nurses didn't notice
The baby's mother, Shang Shao, 45, had been rushed to hospital in Luoyang City in central China's Henan province, and was already in labour when she was taken into surgery to undergo a caesarean.
As she was wheeled into surgery, she gave birth to the boy, who was dragged along the floor for several feet before nurses saw a trail of blood and stopped pushing the wheelchair. The baby suffered fatal head injuries and died soon after from intracranial hematomas.
