Tragically, according to the British media, the son of actor Jamie King, who has appeared on The Tudors, died recently from severe brain damage following his birth.
According to the Telegraph, the mother involved in the birth had her C-Section delayed for 12 hours and the actor apparently believes it lead to his son’s fatal injuries.
According the news source, the boy lived just five days earlier this month following his birth. A coroner ruled that the boy was “born in poor condition and died due to a delay in his delivery,” the news outlet reported. The child was allegedly deprived of oxygen during the birthing process, leading to severe brain injuries.
King is now urging couples to take notes during deliveries to avoid conflicts with healthcare providers. England has NHS, which provides services for citizens, and the actor has told reporters that parents should be cautious so “no one can twist your story”.

Delays During Childbirth Can Be Fatal
This story is a sad reminder that delays by providers during childbirth can be fatal or lead to serious injuries. Botched deliveries occur worldwide, as delays resulting from the failure to order a C-Section in a timely manner include deformities, brain damage, cerebral palsy, erb’s palsy and shoulder dystocia.
Medical providers have a duty to make sure procedures are completed in a timely manner. The failure to do so can devastate a family forever, leaving it in a difficult financial situation and/or emotionally drained. No family should have to grieve over the loss of a child due to medical errors or suffer financially.
