Hospital staff tapes baby's mouth shut

PHILIPPINES (WZTV/WACH)â??The parents of a newborn staying in a hospital in the Philippines were shocked after finding their newborn babyâ??s mouth been taped shut.

Ryan Noval and Jasmine Badocdoc were told by the hospital staff that the newbornâ??s mouth was taped because it was â??crying too loudâ?? and â??always asking for milkâ??.

When the mom asked to have the tape removed, she says the nurse told her to do it herself. She says the tape was on for so long that skin reportedly came off the childâ??s lips.
