Nurse sobs as she reveals feeling the final heartbeat of baby 'murdered' by 'killer' colleague Lucy Letby | The Sun
A NURSE sat crying in the witness box after revealing how she felt the final heartbeat of a baby her colleague Lucy Letby is accused of murdering.
The shift leader at the Countess of Chester Hospital, Cheshire, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was trying to resuscitate the twin boy.
She was carrying out CPR on the newborn, known as Baby A, after he suddenly deteriorated in the neonatal unit.
The nurse said she had to reach round the incubator and put her hands around the tiny infant’s chest.
Medics were crowded around in the final attempts to revive him, the jury heard.
She recalled Baby A being given tiny amounts of adrenalin one by one.
