    The hair hat hooligan just wants money period. She also knows she will keep spitting out babies with no money to let the kids ruin another city like Chicago and countless other cities. Sick of paying for these assholes

    ​ johnflux1 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believe in him shall not perish but shall have everlasting life. Jesus came to die for our sins even though people tortured him. Now we are not held captive or bound by our sins but God has given us the freedom to talk to Him and follow His path by our choice. Now if people still decide to do bad, the consequence is hell not because God does not love them but, because they did not love God! If they behave badly and went to heaven without repenting that means Jesus suffered for nothing. So this is why we should turn to God and Christ Jesus because God loves us so much that he sent His only son to die for our sins so that at the end when we do well we can go back to heaven to be with God and with Jesus who is in Heaven with God.

    I'm sure the baby in fine. I think they should offer some care in return like a follow up CT scan to ensure the baby's brain is still alright (they probably already have). Much worse things may have happened while delivering a baby and doctors cannot be expected the be perfect 100% of the time.

    What a minute!!! Who is the one holding the baby with the left hand and who is the one wearing a black watch who lifted the cloth off the baby? We need to clearly see that 1st it happened really fast, very close the edge of the bed, one person holding the baby with one hand and another person pulled and lifted the cloth high and above the baby being held. You can play it multiple times it shows 2 ppl. The one pulling the cloth caused the imbalance and instability here. You have to investigate closely. It’s important to keep the guard rails up and give space to a baby being handled. So if the person in visual holding the baby with the left hand is the doctor, who is the one wearing the black watch , pulling and lifting that cloth still wrapped around the baby? That action caused the rotation of the baby, imbalance and instability and not the one holding the baby. This is critical thinking 💭 🤔. In fact that person holding the baby gave the other person a stare of disapproval.

  • AH! Why is there poop in your mouth

    I don't even consider this an accident. If you can't hold on to a baby, find another career. People will be more upset if the baby had been a newborn puppy. This video ruined my day.

    Logic: All babies premature or not or born with soft spots in the skull. Padded table or not, that baby was dropped on the head.

  • Incumming Moisture Missle

    No doubt a fall like that can cause brain damage and worse. The Clintons, Bushes, Obamas were all dropped on their heads and they all became mass murderers. Get that child a brain scan immediately!!

  • I M A QYN

    They did it on purpose because the baby was from the AFRICAN PARENTS. I WANT TO KILL THESE "NURSES"!!!!!

    I'm going to sound harsh but this is youtube and everyone else gets to say their opinion. THIS IS PRECISELY WHY SO FEW MEDICAL STUDENTS WANT TO GO INTO OB/GYN and we are going to have a massive shortage of doctors able to safely deliver babies in the next decade. The general public are complete idiots when it comes to labor and delivery and newborns. That baby is 100% fine. It fell all of 3 inches. Newborns are extremely resilient by design and can handle a tumble like that just fine. There will be no broken bones because the bones haven't even hardened yet and the hemorrhage the news is talking about is extremely common for premature babies. These parents are looking for a payday in my opinion and they are using this video because they know the media loves eating this crap up and making a mountain out of it to the public. The hospital and the doctors are probably going to end up settling for a very unfair amount of money because of the negative publicity. All I can say is get ready for the massive doctor shortage that is coming because I highly doubt you are going to be able to handle all that it takes to safely deliver and take care of a baby without highly trained medical professionals. We are currently on track to have a 20,000+ ob/gyn shortage in the next decade in the U.S. because of the constant sue-happy nature of the public and the media loving to blow stories like this out of proportion. Medical students are running away from this field. It isn't financially worth it to go into ob/gyn because even small mistakes – like losing grip on an extremely slippery newborn – gets made into a lawsuit that can devastate your career, raise your malpractice insurance so high you can't practice, and basically makes the entire field of OB/GYN not worth it to medical students who can choose more lucrative specialties that don't require so much risk. Those parents had 2 healthy twins and should be thanking the doctors and the nurses for helping them. If they didn't like the medical care, might I suggest they try a bathtub birth at home next time? Let's see how well they can hold onto their baby by themselves.

    The reality is that if you are an ob/gyn, you are going to inevitably get sued. 94% of all on/gyn doctors have had at least one medical malpractice lawsuit filed against them by the time they turn 55. That is completely ridiculous.

  • Dominic Ciccio

    OMG really people are getting upset over this this is an honest mistake people are acting like the doctor tried to decapitate the kid

  • Bonnie Nutter

    I hope the baby will be alright. The parents should get an apology and the man handling that baby should not be handling any more babies in the future.

  • R P

    The same thing happened to my brother. Unfortunately, he died.. I hope the baby is okay and this would not affect her later in life.

  • Fran Sinclair

    they are so rough with it is ridiculous. Why handle in such an aggressive way poor baby coming into the world and to be grabbed like that what about a nice gentle touch. Geeze some doctors have no empathy

  • Korty Jade

    OMG! that was awful! I heldy breath amd froze up! I hope these parents give that hospital hell! The damn doctor saw the video and didn't even apologize!

  • Britt Britt

    Sue👏 that👏 muthafuckin👏 hospital. They way they handled that poor baby like it was a rag doll

  • MsKittysRaiinbowPassiion

    Aww I hope shes ok and dont have any further issues due to her being dropped. This is really messed up and this could happen to anyone that's why when I had my kids I dont play that sh!t you not taking my baby out the room idgaf what it's for when I delivered my babies I watched everything

  • greenpeas154

    The baby actually almost fell from the table on the floor. Horrible how they treat a premature newborn. 🙁

  • It's what You make it

    Dude. Infantile spasms. Wow. I am so sad for them omgoodness! I wouldn't have been able to speak.

  • Floppy Bunny

    So how many of you that are outraged by this video are "Pro Choice"? Because what they do during an abortion is way worse than this. How do you deal with that cognitive dissonance?

  • Order of the True Force

    Videotaping of all surgeries should be mandatory. Operating rooms should be equipped with special audio/video equipment for this purpose. Without this video, this mother could not sue or even know what happened.

  • Marilyn Desrosiers

    Actually, it looks like the nurse deliberately poured the baby out of the blankets and the "doctor" grabbed it to keep it from falling any further

  • Jordyn Leach

    Isn't it funny how the limbs don't move from a set position and the cry never changes? Hope this family got a big payday off of a med school simulation

  • Chase McClure

    Well good news is the drop on the head couldn’t have made the baby any uglier than it already is. I’m a glass half full kinda guy.

  • Faith Maposua

    omg! how could they drop the poor baby girl? yall doctors need to be careful next time. at least she's ok😭❤

  • Sam

    I never realized this before—I don’t think platforms like that are good—I know she didn’t fall off of it, but almost…

  • Muhammad Ali Eesaa

    It could be one of the reasons for SIDS, maybe that's why some kids are born with epilepsy or a disability or leaning difficulties. I could be wrong or I could be right, I you know anyone with a disability like what I mentioned could have been dropped when they were born.

  • Kingston Flaherty

    People are so retarded LOL, the baby barely fell on that table and people make such a big damn deal. This stupid baby is fine..

  • Stella Marlena

    That baby is fine, it BARELY slipped so softly onto the padded table like an inch below and it was absolutely fine.

  • Tramaine Johnson

    Can't blame em babies are slimy and slippery when they come out lady. It's like tryna grab a bar of soap with rubber gloves on.
