November 9, 2011

The Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare has proposed a new act to provide up to 30 million in compensation for newborns or moms who die during childbirth.

Starting in 2013, the government and the doctor(s) will also be required to compensate for babies diagnosed with cerebral palsy during birth, even if there’s no proof that the doctor’s mistake caused the accident, according to arirang, Korea’s Global TV.

The Ministry hopes to more efficiently resolve prolonged lawsuits.

It Was More Than a Television for Jayden

November 9, 2011

It was a 42-inch television, large by many standards. The family couldn’t really afford the purchase, but invested in the value. For Jayden Williams, a 14-year-old teen from Rotorua, New Zealand, it wasn’t about the money, it was escape. Pure entertainment. It lasted seven months.

Jayden who has cerebral palsy looked forward to playing computer games after intense physical therapy sessions. Now, days after a robbery, Jayden sits staring at the place the computer is no longer.

“We came into a little bit of money and we got a really good deal on this TV so we decided to put the money into buying it,” explains Tracy Mosen, Jayden’s mother. He isn’t able to run around town and play like other teen’s his age.

Jayden lives with his mother, a sister and a brother. The brother had left the back door unlocked when he stepped out for the evening which provided the robbers easy access.

“No one has come in the house before and certainly not while we were sleeping,” Mosen said. “We certainly can’t afford a new one and insurance is just way too expensive.”

“He is just so upset this has happened,” Mosen said. In fact, in an effort to retrieve his television Jayden is offering $100 of his own money as a reward for information on his television’s whereabouts. He posted the offer on his Facebook account.
