A family member of a British woman who died after a car wreck say staff at Lincoln County Hospital did not tell initially them they had performed an emergency caesarian section on the woman. Adele Barbour, 48, was not pregnant. Rather, surgery she'd had years before to treat spina bifida left her with an enlarged stomach. "United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust have a duty of candor to be open and honest but they were not and that caused us additional heartache," said Barbour's sister.
