Worlds first mobile light surgery

A hospital in Hanoi lost power in the middle of an operation forcing doctors to operated using the lights of their mobile phones. Doctors in the Vietnamese hospital// were trying to deliver a caesarean during the incident, which was reported by one of the doctors on Thursday.

The surgeons were at a crucial point in a caesarean-section operation on a mother. It was at this point when the lights went out in the operating room in Pleiku General Hospital in Gia Lai province, 550 km north of Ho Chi Minh City.

'The backup generator also failed, we had to continue the operation right away but the operation room was pitch dark,' said Nguyen Tu Tin, chief surgeon of the operation.

So the surgeons quickly gathered up eight mobile phones of all doctors and nurses in the room and used their display lights to continue the operation.

'Though not very bright, the light from the cell phones was good enough for us to remove the baby from his mother before our backup generator brought the light on again,' Tin said.

Both the mother and baby boy are in good conditions and will be released from the hospital shortly.
