Parents File Suit After Hospital Mistakenly Declares Child Dead
Description:The parents of an 8-year-old boy have sued a Chicago hospital, alleging doctors pronounced their son dead though he was still alive.
The lawsuit, filed this week, accuses Mercy Hospital and Medical Center of negligence. It says doctors refused to listen to relatives of Jaylen Dorsey when they insisted the Chicago boy's eyes and body were still moving.
The suit says nearly five hours passed before staff agreed to perform a cardiac ultrasound that showed Jaylen's heart was beating.(1:34)
