After four medical consultations, doctors still failed to diagnose a 14 year old's dislocated cervical vertebrae (dislocated neck vertebrae). He suffered the injury during a rugby training session. Doctors sent him home with morphine to treat severe shoulder pain. He died of respiratory failure a week later. His parents hold the doctors at least partially responsible for their son's death.
