Catania, February 13 - The mother of a newborn girl
who died in an ambulance because of a lack of hospital places in
Catania Wednesday said on Friday she had been prevented from
seeing her on the night she died.
"They didn't let me see her, to hug her, to stroke her
little hand and let her feel I was close to her: they took her
away without me getting to give her her first and last
greeting," said Friday Tania Laura Egitto, mother of a newborn
girl who died in an ambulance because of a lack of hospital
places in Catania Thursday.
"My little one, you'll live forever in our hearts, I'll
remember every little movement you made inside me until just
before your birth.
"You were and will always be my wild little dancer. I love
you, mummy's darling," said Egitto on Facebook, posting a photo
of herself pregnant.
"You will soon have justice and peace," Egitto added,
saying "what was on TV isn't the whole truth".
Catania Prosecutor Giovanni Salvi said Friday that several
people were formally under investigation after Nicole died in an
ambulance taking her to Ragusa because a Catania hospital had no
room for her.
But Salvi also stressed that this move was necessary for
people involved in the care of the baby to "have all the
elements to be able to defend themselves".
The prosecutor added that it was a complicated case and
that so far no "precise responsibility" for the death had been
pinned to anyone.
Nicole was born in a private clinic in Catania on
Wednesday night, but when she developed breathing complications
medical staff quickly tried to move her to a neonatal intensive
care facility in the same city.
However, it was too crowded so an ambulance then tried to
rush the newborn to the intensive care facility at a pediatric
hospital in Ragusa.
The two cities lie about 105 kilometres apart by road.
The baby died en route even as doctors in the ambulance
tried to revive her.
On Thursday Italian President Sergio Mattarella phoned
Sicilian Governor Rosario Crocetta to say how "incredulous" he
was at the case.
Mattarella, elected last month to replace Giorgio
Napolitano, is Italy's first president from Sicily.
