Medical team ignores signs of uterine rupture and fetal distress and baby suffers brain damage and cerebral palsy caused by severe oxygen deprivation

A mother with known risk factors for uterine (womb) rupture presented to the labor and delivery unit with signs of a ruptured uterus. The medical team failed to act with skill and a sense of urgency; signs of fetal distress were missed, the baby was not delivered quickly by emergency C-section, and the baby suffered severe oxygen deprivation in his brain and now has severe cerebral palsy.
