Couple who waited THREE DAYS to take baby with fractured arm to hospital jailed for four months
A mum and her partner let her five-month-old baby endure three days of “significant pain” after failing to follow doctor’s orders to take him to A&E ‘immediately.’
Gemma Warne, and her partner at the time, Lee Chambers, took the little boy to the doctor after he began crying when he was picked up and when his shoulder was touched.
They had been told to take him to accident and emergency immediately on August 14, 2015 but the pair claim they “did not hear” their doctor’s instructions.
They only did take the boy – who had suffered a fractured arm – three days later when they noticed his arm was ‘hanging.’
Their actions were branded ‘unforgivable’ by a judge, who jailed them both for four months.
