Phuket –

A 30-year-old mother has filed a report to police after a hospital in Phuket Town later informed her that her two-weeks-old baby girl had allegedly suffered a broken arm.

Today, (June 7th) Ms. Aujchara Jantararat, 30, a teacher, went to the Phuket City Police Station and filed a report to police.

She told police, “Last month on May 23rd I gave birth at a major hospital in Phuket Town.”

The Phuket Express has withheld the name of the hospital pending a further police investigation.

“A doctor, whose name was also withheld, said my baby girl had choked on amniotic fluid and she needed to do a lung X-Ray. The baby was being treated at the hospital while I was released from the hospital. I was allowed to visit my baby once a week.”

“On May 31st, I went to the hospital to visit my baby, the baby was healthy but the baby had to continue to be treated in the hospital, according to doctors.”

“Yesterday, (June 6th), I visited my baby again, and a nurse informed me that my baby had a broken arm. I was shocked. I tried to ask them how did it happen. They told me they needed to conclude the cause of the injury before they could give any details.”

“I filed a report to police as I want the hospital to clarify this injury and what they will do next.” Aujchara concluded.

As of press time the hospital had not made a public statement and the situation was being heavily discussed on Thai social media.
