PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — Director of the South West Regional Health Authority, Albert Persaud says an investigation has been launched into the circumstances that led to the death of a 26-year-old woman just days after giving birth.

It’s reported that Maquad­er Mar­tin died on the floor near the bathroom area of the maternity ward of the San Fer­nan­do Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal, three days after giving birth to her first chil

An au­top­sy re­vealed that she died from a pul­monary em­bolism.

However, the Trinidad Guardian reports that Martin’s common law husband, Davis Nedd, believes her death was due to negligence on the part of medical personnel.

According to the Guardian, a visitor and a patient who were both on the ward when Martin died con­firmed that she dragged her­self to the bath­room af­ter she was re­fused a bed­pan.

They al­so claimed that af­ter she col­lapsed, she was left there for a long time be­fore be­ing at­tend­ed.

The Guardian reports that Nedd is sus­pi­cious of the au­top­sy re­sults as it was done last Sun­day in the ab­sence of relatives or without Mar­tin’s iden­ti­fi­ca­tion doc­u­ments.

The common law husband says he is try­ing to have a sec­ond au­top­sy done and has also sought le­gal ad­vice.
