Man Sues Hospital Claiming He Contracted ‘Psychotic Illness’ From Watching Wife’s C-Section

A man in Australia sued a hospital for allowing him to watch his wife deliver a baby via cesarean-section birth in 2018, claiming it caused him a “psychotic illness.”

Anil Koppula, a new father, brought the complaint several years after the successful procedure, claiming that the ordeal caused a “breakdown of his marriage.”

In the documents filed to support his suit, “Mr. Koppula alleges that he was encouraged, or permitted, to observe the delivery, that in the course of doing so, he saw his wife’s internal organs and blood.”

Additionally, Koppula claims “that the Hospital breached a duty of care it owed to him and is liable to pay him damages.”

His lawsuit seeks damages from the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne in the amount of 1 billion Australian dollars, the equivalent of more than 642 million US dollars/Ksh94 billion.

The hospital in Australia has said that it hadn’t breached a “duty of care,” and Koppula didn’t suffer any real injury because of the C-section he observed.

The court however dismissed the suit, calling the claim an “abuse of process.”
