Boy's parents demand compensation from hospital for his death

A court ordered a Chinese hospital to pay compensation to the parents of a 2 year old boy who died after being treated at the hospital for a high temperature with diazepam, a sedative. The boy developed breathing difficulties, his skin went blue, had pink exudate discharge from his nose and soon after died after receiving the medication for fits he was having upon admission. His parents believe 4 pages of hospital notes were removed to cover up a medical error; the hospital defends the treating doctors' actions and states that the child died from his illness.
