On September 23, Ruby Graupera-Cassimiro went into the hospital for a routing cesarean section. The procedure was fine and everything seemed normal; the baby was healthy and breathing, but shortly after, the mother started to have trouble breathing and suddenly her breath stopped.
Obviously, the staff on hand for the birth tried to revive her but it was to no avail and her heart stopped. For 45 minutes. Until it started again. Without any assistance.
