However, instead of the needed injection, a nurse reportedly injected her with an anaesthetic instead. Her patient chart was reportedly misplaced, for that of a woman who needed an abortion due to a  missed miscarriage.

The woman and the nurse did not know what had happened until she noticed some bleeding which another doctor confirmed.

“The doctor and nurse have acknowledged their fault,” a police official said. They are now being accused of negligence resulting in bodily harm.

A police spokesperson told CNN that the case will soon be sent to the prosecutor’s office.
