To Emmanuel's surprise, his wife's condition physically worsened by the time he returned from to the hospital the next morning to see her before the surgery.
"When I returned the next morning, my wife had taken a turn for the worst. She was sweating profusely and was in severe pain. The change was really dramatic," the new widower says.
At that point, Emma's wife who is now late, indicated to her husband that the doctor had not yet seen her that morning but she had been attended to by a previous medical officer.

An hour later, as the dying woman kept wailing in pain, the doctor that was to take care of her arrived. He was also surprised by the woman's condition, inquired what medication was administered and found out it was the wrong one.
From that moment, drugs were administered over and over in an attempt to keep the woman from giving up the ghost but it was all too late.
