The baby was delivered on March 31, 2014, via emergency cesarean due to recurrent late decelerations and minimal variability

Experts concluded that multiple staff members failed to identify the obvious signs of fetal distress and that the child should have been delivered sooner to avoid intrapartum hypoxia. At the time of delivery, the baby was limp with no spontaneous respiratory effort and the presence of meconium.

Despite receiving therapeutic hypothermia, the child has the following diagnoses: spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy, hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, microcephaly, seizures, significant global developmental delays, and he cannot speak, walk, or sit up on his own.
