Baby Olivia Coats Forceps Death


Several hundred people gathered on Sunday to help the family of Baby Olivia Coats raise money for expenses since she died shortly after delivery at the Medical Center of Southeast Texas. In a tragic accident, the doctor delivering Olivia Coats crushed her skull and severed her spinal cord using forceps. The family is trying to get the Texas state legislature to ban the use of forceps by passing 'Olivia's Law' during the next session. Baby Olivia was born on New Years Day of 2014 and died a few days later at a Houston hospital. The money raised today will help Olivia's family pay medical expenses.
