Accordng to the hospital, “Patient had severe hypertension and was known to have other comorbidities requiring medications that made her prone to vascular thromboembolism.
“Indeed at surgery she was found to have an ischaemic and gangrenous uterus with a massive intra-abdominal bleed. The fetus was dead.
“Being Jehovah’s Witnesses all efforts to persuade her husband and family members to accept blood transfusion that could have saved her life, failed.
