Hanan Mahmoud Abdul Karim, 36, gave birth to her son via C-section at a private hospital in Amman, Jordan, on April 24, 2015.
Karim’s mother, Majeda Abdul Hamid, alleged that her daughter’s doctor left his phone in her. Hamid said their family noticed Karim’s stomach vibrating. "My daughter suffered serious pains and could not move,” Hamid said. "I brought her back to the hospital where she was treated but nothing was done for her.”
Surgeons later removed the phone, but Jordanian Health Ministry spokesman Hatem Al Azrae disputed Karim’s claim and said the story was "baseless and a fabricated one.” However, the ministry is investigating the case.
Jordanian parliament member Salim Al Bataynah said the government should resign because of the case. “In countries which show respect to their nations, and following such scandals, governments usually resign,” he said. “The parliament should show responsibility and be on the level of the case.”
