Boy's brain injury puts focus on Seattle Children’s hospital again
The recent deaths of two babies under the care of Seattle Children's hospital has prompted a Seattle father to speak out, saying his family is still waiting for answers about why their 2-year-old son was left with irreversible brain damage after heart surgery at the hospital earlier this year.
Osman Ali, who was born with a heart defect "but was doing everything that a normal child" that age would do, lost his ability to see, speak and walk after the Feb. 5 surgery at Children's, said his father, Nasir Ali.
Ali has hired an attorney to determine what went wrong.
