QEH fall mum feels let down
NATALIE BRATHWAITE may be out of her labour pains but the agony she felt following an elevator drop some months ago continues.
Thirty-year-old Brathwaite, 30 weeks pregnant, was one of several people in a Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) lift in February when it plunged from the B floor to the ground.
