8-Year-Old Boy Dies After Undergoing Circumcision In Hospital

A family in Koromatanga village Kakamega County in Kenya is in tears following the death of their 8 year old son during a reported circumcision.

The deceased’s family said their son reportedly bled to death whilst undergoing the ritual at the hospital in Kakamega.

The 8 year old boy is said to have began vomiting as soon as the doctor dispensed anaesthesia, but assured his family that everything would go on well.

During an interview with Citizen TV, the deceased’s dad painfully explained that they could not halt the procedure because the medical practitioner had assured them that everything would still be carried out successfully.

Before the surgery when the little boy began vomiting, the medical practitioner asked the family if he had eaten anything. His dad confirmed he had eaten before heading to the hospital.

When the doctor injected him the anaesthesia before starting the operation, the boy started vomiting. The doctor asked if he had eaten and I told him he ate just a little. Even the child acknowledged he had eaten,” said the traumatized father.

The doctor revealed it was dangerous but decided to proceed with the circumcision.

The boy’s condition worsened

The boy’s condition worsened during the surgery but the doctor focused on finishing the procedure.

As soon as the doctor finished the exercise, the little boy allegedly started vomiting excessively with foam and blood coming out from his mouth and nose.

He was rushed back to the theater but unfortunately died while there.

 He started vomiting foam and blood from both his nose and mouth. He was put on oxygen. Later on, he was taken back to the theatre but he did not make it out, said the father.

The deceased developed complications and rushed to Kenyatta National Hospital. She had apparently spent a night at a city lodge with her brother in law.
