Mom, 26, cut in half when elevator reportedly malfunctions in freak accident
Published August 21, 2017 Fox News

A mother who had just given birth to her third daughter was reportedly cut in half at a Spanish hospital Sunday when her stretcher became stuck between floors inside an elevator.

Rocio Cortes Nunez, 26, was being transported between the second and third floors of Our Lady of Valme Hospital in Seville when the incident occurred, according to .au.

Nunez's stretcher was pushed on to the elevator -- which suddenly moved upwards before the stretcher was fully inside, trapping Nunez, whose head was reportedly stuck between the roof and the elevator frame.

Firefighters needed about two hours to reach Nunez's body, according to local reports.

Aside from Triana, Nunez leaves behind daughters Carmen, 5, and Rocio, 4, The Telegraph reported.
