Rape coma baby: Hacienda Healthcare staff must hand DNA to police

Woman in vegetative state gives birth at Hacienda Healthcare in Phoenix

In a statement, tribal officials said the woman was still in a vegetative state when she gave birth.

It has been revealed the 29-year-old woman was an enrolled member of the San Carlos Apache tribe, whose reservation is in south-eastern Arizona.

Police are now investigating the case as a potential sexual assault with an anonymous source telling the outlet that staff at the facility did not know the woman was pregnant.

"When you have a loved one committed to palliative care, when they are most vulnerable and dependent upon others, you trust their caretakers", he said.

Martin Solomon, a personal injury attorney in Phoenix whose clients are mostly adult victims of abuse and neglect, said any lawyer representing the woman should call for all pertinent medical records, a list of current and former employees and any past litigation involving Hacienda.

Hacienda HealthCare confirmed the search warrant for DNA samples Tuesday evening.

RAPE PROBE: Hacienda HealthCare has said it is cooperating with police (Pic: ABC 15) "Sadly, one of her caretakers was not to be trusted and took advantage of her".

Alejandro Benally, Chief of the San Carlos Apache Police Department said in the press release that "this matter falls under the jurisdiction of the Phoenix Police Department".

It has been learned that a woman in a vegetative state at a Phoenix-area nursing facility was sexually assaulted after giving birth to a baby boy on Saturday.

Police are rounding up the DNA of all male employees of the Arizona healthcare facility where an Apache woman who spent the last 14 years in a vegetative state recently gave birth to a healthy boy.

Thai police: Canada, Australia willing to accept Saudi woman
The Saudi embassy in Bangkok said it "did not demand her deportation" and that the case is "a family affair". Surachate said her father and brother were due to return home on a flight in the early hours of Saturday.


"Bill Timmons, longtime Chief Executive Officer of Hacienda HealthCare, has terminated his employment from the company effective immediately", a Tuesday statement from the facility to HuffPost reads. The woman has been a patient at this facility for at least a decade following a near-drowning incident, the Phoenix-based station quoted its source as saying.

Hacienda HealthCare said it was fully co-operating with the authorities. "I haven't been able to sleep well at night because of what occurred here", a mother, Angela Gomez, told CBS.

"To that end, we are re-evaluating the state's contract and regulatory authority as it relates to this facility and have been working closely with state agencies to ensure all necessary safety measures are in place".

A spokesman for Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) called the recent report "deeply troubling" in a statement to The Washington Post.

The Arizona Department of Health Service and the Arizona Department of Economic security have also released statements and both organisations are conducting investigations into the incident and conditions at the facility.
