The 31-year-old woman was pregnant with twins on New Year's Day in 2006 when she sought urgent medical assistance. When she arrived at the hospital, Stodghill was vomiting and short of breath, sustaining a clogged artery and a massive heart attack. While medical practitioners attempted to resuscitate her, they were unsuccessful and the doctor on call purportedly never answered a page seeking medical assistance. The twins died after Stodghill passed away -- just one hour after arriving at St. Thomas More.
The woman's husband, Jeremy, filed a wrongful-death lawsuit in the wake of the incident, claiming that the doctor on call should have responded. Had there been additional medical coordination, he believes his unborn children might have been saved. While an expert testified that the mother's life likely couldn't have been spared, had the doctor been on hand and ordered a cesarean section, the individual agreed that the twins might still be alive today.
