Queens Toddler Dies After Routine Circumcision
A Queens toddler died on the operating table this week after a routine circumcision -- a tragedy his family thinks was the result of the wrong analgesic.

Hospital officials say it "could take weeks" to get results of an autopsy for the 2-year-old boy, Jamaal Coleson Jr.

A spokesman from the medical examiner's office told NBC New York that an initial autopsy was inconclusive and that the baby's remains are "pending further testing," which could take weeks. But Coleson's family wants answers sooner.

1. Babies dying from med errors, anyone dying from med errors, is really sad.

2. Oh, how very sad...
What a tragedy for all of them...

There is nothing like the premature death of a child, especially when the circumstances are "routine."

:cry:

3. Uff da! I guess that's the end of circumcision, then.
I'm not sure what Jewish people are going to do, though...

5. That's what I was thinking
Circumcision at 2 years old is not routine, circumcision at 2 days old is routine.

6. Exactly. At that age I believe it's due to the child having issues. n/t
