The parents of an 8-year-old boy have sued a Chicago hospital, alleging doctors pronounced their son dead though he was still alive.
The lawsuit, filed this week, accuses Mercy Hospital and Medical Center of negligence.
It says doctors refused to listen to relatives of Jaylen Dorsey when they insisted the Chicago boy’s eyes and body were still moving.
The suit says nearly five hours passed before staff agreed to perform a cardiac ultrasound that showed Jaylen’s heart was beating.
This is one crazy story. Would you take the same course of action as these parents? Or should they be grateful to the hospital for saving their son’s life in the end?
