Autopsy confirms baby who died in Rome hospital born healthy

(ANSA) - Rome, July 27 - A second autopsy performed on the 30-month-old baby who died in a Rome hospital June 29 confirmed that he was "born premature, but heathly", investigators said on Friday. The baby, Marcus Johannes De Vega, was allegedly administered milk interveneously rather than a saline drip. Despite weighing under one kilogram, the newborn had no signs of "infection as suggested by some press," said the family's legal representative following the autopsy. Seven doctors and 13 nurses are under investigation for the death of the infant, subsequent cover ups and falsifying the baby's medical charts. On Monday, Ignazio Marino, President of the Commission of Inquiry for the National Health Service, fingered lack of resources along with human error as the cause of the "tragic mistake".
