A mother who delivered her son by cesarean section says she was left with a mobile phone inside her body when she was sewn back up.
Hanan Mahmoud Abdul Karim, 36, underwent a cesarean section at a private hospital in Jordan giving birth to a baby boy weighing 10lbs 8ozs.
However, after the new mother experienced abdominal vibrations, her family rushed her to the public Al Bashir hospital where doctors allegedly found the foreign object and removed the phone.
Her mother, Majeda Abdul Hamid, told reporters: ‘My daughter suffered serious pains and could not move.
‘I brought her back to the hospital where she was treated but nothing was done for her.’
The Jordanian Health Ministry spokesman, Hatem Al Azrae, was reported by Gulf News dismissing the claim as a "baseless and a fabricated one".
