A doctor using three mobile phones for lighting almost cut off a baby’s ear as he was delivered by caesarean section in a Mexico hospital.

There had been a power outage for around 26 minutes at the at Mexicali International Specialties Clinic in Mexicali, Baja California, when the obstetrician decided to go ahead with the procedure using the glare emitted from the phones, with 19-year-old mum-to-be Karla Urizandi having already been put under anaesthetic before the lights went out.

Her gynaecologist was there along with the obstetrician Dr David Santoyo, and another doctor, with Juan Adriel Solis duly being born on June 6.

But his left ear was cut by Dr Santoyo as he attempted to remove an hemangioma – a vascular birthmark – which caused the baby’s head to swell up.

"With three cell phones pointed at my belly, they begin to perform a caesarean section,” explained the shocked teenager on TikTok.

“I told him no, I don’t want to die. In reality, it scared me a lot.

“After a few minutes I heard my baby cry. I think that they are going to put him aside, no. More time passes and I ask him, ‘and the baby?’.”

Karla revealed it was only when her husband Juan Solis appeared and told her what had happened to their newborn son, did she realise the extent of his injuries.

“I was waiting for a doctor or someone to come in and give me an explanation, but it wasn’t like that,” she added.

“At no time did they arrive or explain anything to me."

A video recorded by one of the physicians showed one of the doctors holding the baby and placing him over a blanket as he cried aloud.

The family have since returned home, with the baby recovering from the frightening incident, but Karla and her husband have filed an incident report with Baja California Attorney General’s Office, accusing the medical facility and doctors of malpractice.
