Video shows doctor dropping newborn infant on her head

National News

(KPNX) — A premature baby was dropped on her head moments after birth in a video from a Chandler hospital that a family posted on Facebook.

The video shows a newborn baby, Morgan, wrapped in blankets on a table in a hospital. 

The doctor lifts Morgan and holds her in one hand near the edge of the table as the blankets are removed from the table.

Morgan, who was born prematurely with her twin Madison, slips from the doctor’s hand and lands head first, at least a ten-inch fall.

The other medical professionals in the room gasped and everyone reached for Morgan to prevent her from falling on the ground. The doctor spins Morgan, rubs her head and wipes her with a blanket.

For Monique and Derrick Rogers, Morgan’s parents, the incident is a nightmare they can’t forget.
