Where my home state of Tamil Nadu gets into the news for this bizarre story of parental pride gone too far.
Two Indian doctors are facing an investigation into claims they let their 15-year-old son perform a caesarean section to get into the Guinness Book of Records.
The government of Tamil Nadu state in southern India today said it was launching an inquiry, according to Indian newspaper reports.
It is alleged the doctors screened a video of their son performing the caesarean at a meeting of the regional branch of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) last month in the hope their son, Dhileepan Raj, would get into the record book as the world’s youngest surgeon.
I feel like laughing at the parents, but the patient and her fetus were put at grave risk, what idiots!
