Ayesha Harris | 3 years ago | Reply No sacrifice at all. Please don't portray it like that. I have seen the condition of hospitals and the quality of staff here. He died because of the hospital's incompetence. I hope the poor poor kid is in heaven and at peace. Ameen. He died due to the negligence of the hospital and it's inability to deal with such procedures.
