The coroner at the inquest into the death of baby Noah Tyler has recorded a narrative verdict. He suffered irreversible brain damage during his birth at the University Hospital of Wales, in Cardiff, in February 2011, and died ten months later.
An inquest into the death of a baby who suffered brain damage when he was born is due to reach a verdict today. Noah Tyler died 10 months after being deprived of oxygen at his birth, at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff, in February 2011.
The proceedings in Cardiff opened two weeks ago, and heard two days of evidence before adjourning. Midwife Julie Richards admitted making "catastrophic mistakes" at the birth.
An inquest has heard how a baby boy died after being deprived of oxygen when he was born at the University hospital of Wales in Cardiff.
The midwife in charge of his birth has since been dismissed and the hospital has apologised to the family after the pathologist claimed "baby Noah suffered irreversible brain damage due to lack of blood and oxygen around or during birth."
Noah's mother, Colleen, told the inquest how she kept replaying the birth in her head and was 'tortured' by the memory of it.
Noah spent months being treated by specialists at the 1,000-bed hospital. But he showed little signs of progress and he was moved to a children's hospital where he died on December 23 at the age of 10 months.
Mrs Tyler and her husband from Caerphilly are suing the University hospital of Wales in Cardiff for negligence. The inquest, which is due to last two days, is continuing.
