A 38-year-old Nigerian technician burst in tears in a viral video after losing two children in barely three days.
The man identified as, Esan Oladotun, while speaking to Punch’s correspondent revealed how it all happened.
He stated that after his unborn child died in his wife’s womb about two weeks to his delivery, his 13-year-old daughter, Tunmise, a Junior Secondary School 3 pupil of Anointed Academy School also died.
Read what he said below;
“I have been living with Sandra, my wife, for 18 years. We had three children and she was pregnant with our fourth child. I also have a stepdaughter. When the pregnancy was about seven months old, water began coming out of her.
We went to see her doctor, and he recommend that she should go for a scan. From the scan, it was discovered that the baby was not in the right position. But the doctor assured us that everything would be fine. But even after treatment, the water was still coming out of her till last Monday, when the water began to smell. By this time, the pregnancy was already about eight and a half months old.
“After the removal of the dead child, I could not stand the sight of it, so I asked my mother-in-law and my stepdaughter to take it away for burial,”
“At about 4am the following day, Friday, I received a call that my daughter was in distress. She could no longer breathe and was bleeding from her nose, so she was being taken to the state-owned Central Hospital for treatment.
“When I arrived at the hospital, I called to know where she was, but was told that she had been referred to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital because there was no electricity at the central hospital. I was told that at UBTH, the doctor demanded money for oxygen and I told them that I would get money from the ATM at UBTH when I arrived there. But on my arrival there, I was told that my daughter had already died.”
