A Brooklyn woman has been awarded $17.9 million in a lawsuit she filed against the city and the Brooklyn Hospital Center for an incorrect diagnosis that forced the amputation of both her feet and hands.

The next day, the suit claims, she was hit with “agonizing pain and numbness,” but fire department medics would not take her back to the hospital. By the time her fiancé rushed her to another emergency room, an infection had spread throughout her body, and her extremities had to be amputated.
