Police Release Frantic 911 Call of Workers at Hacienda HealthCare Reacting to Vegetative Woman Giving Birth


The nation was shocked by news of a woman in a vegetative state giving birth last month at a Phoenix care facility. Now, audio of a panic-stricken 911 call reveals workers who seem not only shocked, but frantic: “We need help, please,” a nurse at Hacienda HealthCare tells the dispatcher on December 29, per CNN. “Baby’s turning blue! Baby’s turning blue.” In a feverish exchange with a man who gets on the line, the nurse says “we were not prepared for this” and says she’s “not sure” how the mom is doing. “We had no idea this patient was pregnant.” Things appear to take a turn for the worse when the nurse blurts out, “Baby is not breathing, baby is blue.”

But people in the room resuscitate the baby with a self-inflating resuscitator, and soon the newborn can be heard crying. “Oh my gosh, thank god,” says the nurse. Police are investigating the pregnancy as a sexual assault and taking DNA from men at Hacienda, but there’s apparently no suspect. Hacienda’s CEO has resigned, and the 29-year-old victim‘s mother, Karina Cesena, says she’s staying in the room all day, every day: “Trust has been broken,” she tells KTVK of her daughter, who nearly drowned at age 2 and has been in a vegetative state ever since. “I do not [know if my daughter was victimized], but I do ask her, and she can answer yes or no. She is not able to walk or talk yet, but she does understand.” Hear the 911 audio at KNXV. (Or read about a man who showed signs of consciousness after 15 years in a vegetative state.)
