Was Maria Larios’ Throat Punctured, did it result in her Death?

Mildred Larios

According to the women, a doctor was called in and somehow Maria’s lung was allegedly punctured when a tube was introduced into her throat. Within minutes and before their eyes, thirteen year old Maria was dead and carted away from the medical ward.

“He came and said that the girl is really ill and they did an x-ray in the morning and it was clean and this afternoon we noticed that the little girl had pneumonia. She didn’t have pneumonia when we took her there. He said now we are going to sedate her and we are going to put a tube and medicate her. Right there in the same ward where everyone else was—he didn’t even take her to intensive care—right there he inserted the tube and she began to bleed. Then he said that they are going to take her to intensive care, but she was already going dead. Half an hour later, the doctor and another person exited and passed us and didn’t say anything. A nurse said right now they will notify us what happened. The doctor said that her lungs were punctured and if we can give authorization for an autopsy to be performed on her because they don’t know what happened. They don’t know if she had dengue, if she had anything. That they don’t know what happened just that the lung got punctured. When he entered the tube, the punctured her lung.”


The family made a formal complaint to the Public Relations Unit of the hospital.

    What is happening to our medical center yet another death this is a very serious problem or should I say a serious lack of proper knowledge in the expertise of medical understanding, these thing should not be happening do they lack the true knowledge of understanding what it is to be a medical practitioner even in the lowest form are they just not taking their job serious even in the simples cases working in the medical department requires total understanding of all cases you need to be committed and focus and have full understanding of proper procedures to follow from the very low cases to the serious one ,now another mother mourns the death of her child because of these serious flaw in the medical system the head or heads of that department really needs to find a solutions to this serious flaw the system and when I mean system I mean in all forms of understanding what it means to be apart of the medical department if no solution is found to these one of the many flaw in the system and to rectify the matter then that just means true caring even for the less fortunate is not their.
