Baja California Governor Marina Avila denied any special protection will be given to doctors who allegedly cut a newborn’s ear during a Cesarean surgery earlier this month.
The surgery was held June 6 in a private hospital named Clínica de Especialidades Internacionales de Mexicali during a power outage.
Doctors were forced to use cell phones in order to produce light during the surgery, which violates Mexican regulations.
Gov. Avila said the case investigation is ongoing.
The state Department of Public Health has already outreached the family. The clinic is partially owned by David Cervantes, a manager with the state’s Executive Office. Another owner is Martha Cecilia Díaz, who’s married to former Secretary of Public Health Guillermo Trejo.
