Police raid hospital over suspicious deaths of four newborns

Police said Tuesday they raided a university hospital in western Seoul over allegations that they mishandled the treatment of four premature babies in an intensive care unit, resulting in their mysterious deaths this weekend.

The crime unit of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency sent its investigators to search the premises of Ewha Womans University Medical Center to confiscate evidence, including incubators, injection tools and medical records, the agency said.

The raid comes as four newborns successively died of an unknown cause within less than a two-hour period Saturday. The health authorities have launched a full investigation to find out the exact cause of the accident, while the preliminary autopsies on the babies have found no evident reason for their deaths although it has left open the possibility of a bacterial infection.
