The father of the nine-week-old baby, who died at the St. Gregory Hospital in Kasoa over a GHS533 bill, brought the money just 2 hours after the doctor ordered for the oxygen supply to be cut leading to the baby’s death.

The mother of the little Prosper said that before the oxygen supply was cut, the doctor walked up to her and asked if she had heard from Prosper’s father, Kennedy Kwao.

“I [said] I didn't hear, then he removed the oxygen,” she said.

Baby Prosper Delali Kwawu was admitted to the hospital last month after it was detected that he was finding it difficult to breathe. However, he did not make it out of the hospital alive.

Narrating her ordeal, mother of the deceased baby said she is heartbroken by the death of her young son, especially because it was due to financial constraint.
