Hatchett’s Legal Battle For Justice To Kira
Hatchett’s daughter-in-law Kira went in for the scheduled C-section surgery on April 12, 2016, in an L.A. hospital. Right after delivery, when Kira had spent only a few hours with her newborn, she felt intense pain in her abdomen and started losing color. Almost twelve hours later, she passed away due to massive internal bleeding.
The sudden death of Kira left the whole family in despair. But, Kira’s grieving husband Charles decided to turn the tragedy into a purpose. He believed that the hospital was accountable for her death due to lack of response to her symptoms and filed a lawsuit for medical malpractice against the hospital.
Hatchett joined her son in this fight and raised their voice, addressing the issue through several national television and Internet platforms, hoping that their story could prevent other pregnant mothers from losing their lives. In addition, Hatchett and her son attempted to urge the government to include new legislation for a nationwide review of maternal deaths.
