Parents watched on in horror as a doctor accidentally dropped their newborn twin girl head first just moments after she was born.
The child’s mother, Monique Rogers, announced the traumatic experience and shared a video of the incident to her Facebook page on Wednesday.
Footage shows the child falling from a doctor’s hands head first onto a hard bench at Chandler Regional Hospital in Arizona, on February 14.
“My daughter Morgan was dropped on her head due to the negligence of the staff,” Mrs Rogers wrote, claiming she was not informed of the incident by staff at the time.
“I was never notified she was dropped nor were there any tests done due to them dropping her. I would like to prevent this from happening to other children being born at this hospital.”
The twins, Morgan and Maddison, were already particularly vulnerable due to them being born prematurely.
“Morgan spent a total of 12 days in the neonatal intensive care unit due to her being 3lbs 4oz when born,” Mrs Rogers wrote.
She said a brain scan conducted five days after her birth revealed a grade one haemorrhage, but it was unclear if this was caused by being dropped or born premature.
“I did not find out that this test was done and the results of this test until this past Saturday when I brought up a different concern to her doctor.”
Her video has been shared nearly 60,000 times by horrified viewers and watched over 2 million times.
