The family of a mother is in mourning after what should have been the wonderfully memorable birth of a child. Unfortunately, it wasn’t until they were at the hospital that the woman turned to her husband and uttered just 7 eerie words – and now, she’s dead.
The day a woman gives birth is a day that neither she nor her husband will ever forget, and that is the case for the Cappuccini family, but not for reasons you’d expect. Sadly, Frances Cappuccini, an expecting mother of two, never saw coming what would happen after she went into labor in Gravesend, Kent of England.
Although the incident took place back in 2014, officials have just begun looking into her death after new evidence surfaced. According to reports, Frances went into the hospital, like any mother about to give birth, but things would go horribly wrong.
Feeling something was a bit off – “a sense of impending doom” as the midwife explains – the laboring mother simply looked at her husband, Tom Cappuccini, and uttered 7 eerie words before being taken into a room. “I love you,” she said. “If anything happens just make sure you look after the boys.”
The birthing process started just like all those before her, expect things would take a drastic turn as the mother noticed something was off. Before long, she was asking nurses if she could deliver the child by c-section on account of the pain, but the hospital staff reportedly just laughed at her.
A full 12-hours after labor had begun, doctors finally decided to perform the surgery the following morning. Just like that, Frances was a mother to another beautiful baby – but the worst was yet to come.
As medical findings would later reveal, doctors negligently left behind a portion of the mother’s placenta in her uterus, prompting her body to continue bleeding after she had been stitched up. In the end, Frances would senselessly pass away after losing several liters of blood.
The doctors and other members of the medical staff involved would soon be charged with manslaughter, but officials didn’t get the charges to stick. However, unfortunately for the people responsible for the woman’s death, they didn’t exactly get away with it as officials are looking into the case once again – and this time they’re out for blood.
One of the doctors who treated her, Nadeem Azeez, quickly left the country back when the first charges were dropped. He has remained in Pakistan ever since – but that isn’t the case for everyone.
As for Frances’ husband, he states that he’s glad his wife may finally get the justice she deserves, even if it is a few years late. However, more importantly, he just wants some answers. “You have a competent, intelligent, articulate adult patient who has come in and expressed a clear wish for a certain type of treatment,” he recently inquired. “Why was that not the end of the matter?”
One can only imagine what this man is going through having to raise three children on his own after losing his partner in life. Making matters worse, those responsible for taking his bride from him continue to walk around as free men and women as if nothing had ever happened. Sometimes good people do bad things – but that doesn’t mean actions don’t have consequences.
