Doctors Remove Woman's Arms, Legs After Giving Birth

What the heck is happening at CCF Florida?
A Florida woman went to the hospital eight and a half months ago to deliver her son, but she'll never be able to hold him. Claudia Mejia said an Orlando hospital performed life-altering surgery that left her a quadruple amputee, NewsChannel5 reported. She developed an infection shortly after giving birth and doctors amputated both arms and legs. Mejia and her family want to know why, and they aren't getting the answers they want. She is suing the hospital under Florida's "Patient's Right to Know Act."
