A Black Denver couple had their baby's face slashed, when she was being delivered by c-section. Now the parents want answers.
Last weekend, Kyanni Williams came into the world - just in time for her dad Damarqus to celebrate his first Father's Day. But unfortunately something went wrong during the delivery - and Kyanni's face was slashed.
Damarqus' wife Reazjhana was rushed to have an "emergency" c-section, which she claims she may not have even needed.
Then, during the c-section doctors somehow sliced the baby's face, as they breached the placenta.

Here's a picture of the poor baby:
Here's what the local news is reporting:
“I’ve done over probably 2,500 deliveries and I assisted on C-sections, that’s the first time I’ve ever seen that,” Advance Practice Nurse Lisa Merck said after we sent her the photos. “That is kind of one of the things that can happen, but it is really, really rare.”
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units Network came out with a study looking into C-sections delivered at 13 University centers from 1999 to 2000. The study found 0.7% of more than 37,000 C-sections ended with the baby having skin lacerations.
“I don’t think that’s right. They have to be held accountable for what they did,” grandmother Tashaira Williams said.
