AUSTRALIAN MATERNITY HOSPITAL THROWS BABY AWAY. ARE YOU KIDDING ? "No- I'm afraid it's true"

The distraught parents of the stillborn baby girl are bracing themselves for the worst possible news-Their Baby Daughter was thrown away, the hospital admin say's it was a tragic mistake.
The 33 year old mother from western Sydney gave birth enroute by ambulance to Blacktown Mat/Hospital, nine days later the mother was informed that her stillborn baby named Angelina had 'Gone Missing'.
Western Sydney health area chief exec Stephen Boyages states the expected conclusion is the baby was disposed of by tragic circumstances and unreservedly apologises to the distressed parents
The family said they had come to terms with the death of their daughter, but could never recover from the loss of baby Angelina's body; described by the hospital as a 'systems error' when the hospital staff knew the baby was missing five days after the birth and kept the info from the parents for a further three days.
Professor Boyages said if the finding is that baby angelina was thrown away by mistake there is no way of proving how and when it happened.
Angelina's father said the last time they saw their daughter was when she was taken from the arms of her sleeping mother hours after she was stillborn on the way to the hospital. "All we want is answers. Thats all,(political promises) don't mean anything he said.

Some excerpts plus Condensed version of press releases. will try to follow up Vest.

Thanks for stopping by!

That story is just awful. I realize the doctors and nurses are human too and mistakes happen. But this and some other mistakes have no excuse.

Pugs. Not half as bad as those spanish onions. I spent two days in La Linea Slammer over the border from Gib 51 while on the A/C Indomitable. Real bad accomodation. What do you do for a crust now, or are you out to pasture?.
