A newborn baby’s ear was nearly cut off after the doctor who delivered him by cesarean section chose to use three cell phones for relief after a power outage at a hospital in Mexico.
Karla Urizandi, 19, gave birth to Juan Adriel Solis on June 6 at the Mexicali International Specialties Clinic in Mexicali, Baja California, after the medical facility was without power for about 26 minutes.
Urizandi checked in at 11am and was transferred to the delivery room at 12:40pm.
The power went out around 12:48 pm and the backup generator was reportedly not activated.
The teen recalled that the anesthetic had already been applied when the lights suddenly went out.
Juan Adriel Solis gave birth by cesarean section on June 6 at a clinic in Baja California, Mexico, in the midst of a power outage at the facility. Doctors at the hospital chose to go through the procedure against the will of mother, Karla Urizandi, after seeing doctors using three cell phones as relief and cutting his left ear while removing a hemangioma.

Juan Adriel Solis nearly had his left ear cut off by doctors who delivered him by cesarean section on June 6 at a clinic in Mexicali, Baja California.
Her gynecologist was in attendance along with the obstetrician, Dr. David Santoyo, when another doctor, whose name she didn’t know, chose to continue with the planned cesarean section.
“With three cell phones pointed at my stomach, they start performing a cesarean section. I told him no, I don’t want to die. In reality, I was very scared,” Urizandi said in a TikTok video.
Urizandi said she was “very scared” when Santoyo performed the surgery before Solis’ left ear was cut when they tried to remove a hemangioma – a vascular birthmark – that caused the baby’s head to swell.
“After a few minutes I hear my baby crying,” Urizandi said, looking back at the terrifying delivery. “I think they’re going to put him aside, no. More time passes and I ask him, “What about the baby?”

A video recorded by one of the doctors showed a doctor holding the baby and laying him over a blanket as he cried aloud.
Urizandi said she only learned of her son’s injuries when her husband, Juan Solis, walked in and told her the terrible news.
“I was really waiting for a doctor or someone to come in and explain to me, but it wasn’t like that. They never arrived or explained anything to me,” she said.
Urizandi and her husband filed an incident report with the attorney general of Baja California, accusing the medical facility and doctors of malpractice.
The family is at home with their child, who is recovering from the terrifying accident.
