Medicals Students Make Huge Mistake, Thought They Cut The Umbilical Cord - They Didn't

A hospital in Mexico is accused of hiding a baby’s injury after their medical students allegedly almost sliced the newborn’s penis while they cut the umbilical cord.

According to MailOnline, the father became suspicious when the hospital wouldn’t let him see his baby boy for more than two hours after he was born. Doctors at the Mexican hospital eventually told him his son had a minor accident, but he later found out they accidently cut part of the child’s penis after thinking it was the umbilical cord.

A surgeon had to sew it back together but reportedly made additional cuts when he was to fix the first.

“This shouldn't have happened, they should have assigned a gynaecologist to take care of him, not students,” the baby's mother, Zulem Contreras, told MailOnline.

The hospital is downplaying the situation and is investigating what occurred.

“During the cut of the umbilical cord the skin of the prepuce (the technical term for foreskin) was accidentally injured and repaired through the usual circumcision process that was consented by the parents,” a spokesperson said.
