4 babies die within two hours at Seoul hospital; investigation launched”

Autopsies have been conducted on the four newborns who all died in an 81-minute period in one hospital in Seoul on Saturday.

Doctors and hospital officials said they have no idea why the babies died.

Family members told local media they were concerned about the health of the infants before they died on Saturday.

The hospital said that all four of the babies received CPR but the medical team failed save them. Hospital staff say they do not know what caused the cardiac arrests but told police they did "not seem to have originated from a contagious cause".

According to Seoul Yangcheon police, the four babies were in incubators. They were among 16 babies in the neonatal intensive care ward at the hospital.

On Monday, forensic doctors of the National Forensic Service (NFS) began postmortems on the bodies.

South Korea has spent about $70bn (£53bn) trying to boost the country's birth rate over the past decade, handing out baby bonuses, improving paternity leave and paying for infertility treatment.

Authorities found that one of four infants who were discharged was admitted to the hospital on Sunday for cold symptoms.

Possible causes could include viral or bacterial infections, malfunctioning incubators or medical malpractice. Earlier, the Korea Center for Disease Control and Prevention said that bacterial infections could have caused the deaths, citing results of blood culture tests conducted before the babies died.
