The left arm ends in a stump. Disfigured by the scars on the legs, no fingers.
The cheeks instead of a blush cover burn scars. More recently, one-year-old boy with no nose. The doctors picked up his prosthesis. Day, it is attached with special glue. And at night removed. Later, when the child grows up, you can think about plastic surgery , reports Rus.Media.
Matthew Zakharenko was born on 16 November 2014 at the Central maternity hospital of Tula. The weight of three kilograms, without pathologies, how to tell his mother. The boy found the alfalfa butterfly, which occurs in many newborns. As expected in such cases, prescribed phototherapy. During one of the procedures, November 19, the nurse draped a light blanket and left. The device exploded, the fire alarm went off. The hospital called the on duty of the emergencies Ministry, but the doctor on duty of the Department assured that they are fine. And turned off the alarm button.
Matthew burned for 12 minutes until he came to the rescue.
In the Moscow burn centre of a name of Speransky, where a three-day baby urgently taken, stated: the patient was burned 75% body and 15% of the internal organs. Particularly affected the respiratory tract. Baby bravely endured dozens of operations. And contrary to predictions, survived.
Father Matthew to begin with. 19-year-old mother is a long metal. In April 2015, the abandoned son. Volunteers don’t like to talk about this woman. But I ask her not to judge.
“Catherine in a deranged psychological state, explains the author of the film about orphans “Bluff, or happy New year!” Olga sinyaeva, who now works in the resource center of the family unit. — From the beginning, no one it the support and sympathy received — neither relatives, nor the officials. Perhaps doctors it clicked. Because we all know how they can talk. She explains that the refusal was a condition of sending Matthew to rehabilitation abroad.”
But for the life of the child was resolved to fight, and the Tula doctors immediately sent the boy for treatment in the Moscow children’s city clinical hospital No. 9 named after G. N. Speransky. To anticipate the result of treatment then, no one dared.
“The whole year we fought for it. For the first time in world history a kid in that age were in a very difficult situation, but we picked it up. This is the first time in the history of pediatric surgery, never happened. And now he has been admitted for further treatment, operations, it is still a lot. It’s only the beginning for him,” — said of Matthew the chief physician of hospital of a name of Speransky Anatoly Korsunsky.
The accident, according to the preliminary version, was the result of improper performance of nurses of their professional duties.
The Ministry of health of Tula refute the information that in fact the fire nobody suffered no responsibility. Involved doctors reprimanded. Against the nurse who conducted the procedure, opened a criminal case, but in connection with the Amnesty stopped. Anyone involved in health care workers in the nursing home anymore. Where they are not reported. We only know that the head of the Department of the hospital where the tragedy occurred, Olga Zaitseva on the next day after the fire went into politics. Appointed Chairman of the social policy Committee of the Tula regional Duma.
Female candidates for the role of mother
Pavel Astakhov, who was watching the situation with Matthew from the very beginning, told how a boy with such severe injuries was the most wanted child in several families.
He said that in the fall of 2015, when it was finally determined the status of a child left without parental care), began to appear willing to adopt the boy, eventually identified three main candidates.
First, he said, was the mother of many children Natalia Serganova. “She, contrary to General opinion, is not 39 children in one place, and at that time she had two children, lived, and 39 children, she just raised. The older children all grown up and were ready to help. That somehow made fun of for anything, and she departed,” explained the Ombudsman.
After Natalia is a stub. “To me her question was asked, she did not give permission from the guardianship. I made inquiries, and found that prior to this, she constantly moved, and the residence she had not, but it appeared temporary, until July 2015,” he said, adding that in the end, the tutelage under his parole is actually a dead-end provided a positive opinion on care for a boy, and later on adoption.
It should be mentioned that after the meeting on 10 February, where once again it was decided to postpone the hearing, dead end decided to abandon the adoption of Matthew, without any explanations.
“Further including Svetlana, who immediately said, “I’ll adopt it”. And when she had me the doctors said that the boy himself went to get her hands on, no one prior to this was not” — said the Ombudsman.
This woman still knows very little. According to human rights activists, she has three children, the youngest of whom is the same age as Matthew. And it can ensure your child’s expensive treatment and recovery.
It is there with the permission of the Moscow guardianship in the family Matthew met 2016 New year, spent the winter holidays and was to return to the hospital for further treatment.
“We’ve always done two things: first acted in the interests of Matthew, defending his right to live in better conditions in the family, and the second – creating conditions for equal access of all candidates for guardianship or adoption”, — said Astakhov.
Matthew for 3 years. He lives with his mother, Svetlana, who loves him. She regularly writes a blog toddler, where he writes about all his successes and puts photos of the grown boy. The baby moved a lot of operations, but he’s a real fighter.
