(ANSA) - Turin, September 7 - A three-month-old Italian boy
suffering from severe heart and lung problems arrived in Turin
on Friday for medical treatment after being blocked at a Cairo
clinic because his parents could not afford to pay their medical
bills.
The Italian foreign ministry intervened to assist the couple
who run a pizzeria in the Red sea resort of Sharm-el-Sheikh.
The baby, Samuele Canova, had been admitted to the American
Hospital in the Egyptian capital, where his parents had already
spent 100,000 euros in treatment.
The hospital authorities reportedly refused to release the
young patient until all the bills had been paid off, but the
family had run out of money.
The baby was flown to Italy by military aircraft and
transferred immediately to the Regina Margherita hospital in
Turin.
His condition is said to be very serious.
Canova has pulmonary fibrosis and hypoxic-ischemic
encephalopathy.
