Tanzanian who had wrong surgery dies - UPI.com
Emmanuel Mgaya, 19, died hours after undergoing brain the surgery Thursday. The procedure was performed two weeks later than planned because when he was originally due for brain surgery doctors erroneously performed a knee operation, the BBC reported.
Meanwhile, Emmanuel Didas -- who underwent brain surgery even though he had been hospitalized for a knee problem -- was recovering but partially paralyzed, the British broadcaster said. Didas cannot move his right side following the operation on his brain.
