Tragedy in Puerto Santiago hotel as tourist goes into premature labour and baby dies

Puerto Santiago locals will have seen emergency services on site this morning, including a medical helicopter, but not known the terrible tragedy behind it. Now, police have confirmed that a tourist staying in the Hotel Tamaimo Tropical went into labour very prematurely at the six months stage of her pregnancy, and after giving birth in the bathroom of her hotel room, the infant went into cardiac arrest. Sadly, the efforts of ambulance crew to revive the baby were unsuccessful and it was declared dead at the scene. All services and the hotel are doing what they can to comfort and treat the mother, and have extended their deepest sympathy.
