According to the story, Dr. Arthur Park was helping a woman give birth in 2016. The complaint says that the doctor did not wait long enough to remove the placenta. It was still attached to the mother when he reached in and tried to pull it out. There was no pain medication and the patient was screaming.

However, the doctor merely described her as “agitated” and did not even consider summoning an anesthesiologist to add medication to the patient’s epidural. By pulling the placenta out too soon, the doctor perforated the woman’s uterus. Calls for an ultrasound or a blood transfusion were ignored even though nearby medical professionals said there was a problem.
Eventually, a second doctor move her to the ICU. She had two heart attacks and died seven hours later from the loss of blood.
The doctor’s license has been suspended twice in the 1990s and the lawsuit ask for a hearing to determine if Park’s license can be revoked. So far, no criminal charges have been filed in relation to the case.
