INT. HOSPITAL DELIVERY ROOM – DAY

Doctors and nurses are in a frantic rush to try to successfully deliver a kind of baby they’ve never seen before. The heart-rate monitor BEEPS rapidly. People are running around in commotion. Bloodied medical equipment is being passed around with fervor.

DOCTOR
She needs a Cesarean. There’s no other way.

NURSE
She had it in writing. We have to do it naturally. The father agreed.

DOCTOR
We’ll lose her if we try it. The baby too.

NURSE
They were informed of that. That’s what she wanted.

ORDERLY (O.S.)
I can see the head. Doctor, her heart rate is rising.

The doctor turns back to the woman to deliver the baby. Blood is everywhere. Two people rush out of the room, never having seen this much gore in their lives. A fountain of blood spouts like a fountain.

DOCTOR
We’re losing her!

The heart-rate monitor beeps faster. Faster. The doctor tries his hardest, but he’s losing control. SCREAMS (O.S.), more blood.

DOCTOR
C’mon!

THE HEART MONITOR FLAT-LINES. The mother is dead. A baby CRIES. The doctor has delivered the child and holds it up for the camera to see.

The doctor holds a baby Mr. Met mascot. A nurse covers the dead mother.
