-A woman diagnosed with flesh-eating disease four days after giving birth is taking legal action against the IWK Health Centre and several Halifax-area doctors for alleged wrongdoings in her care during the birth of her child.
Lindsey Hubley’s claim alleges that the negligence of five doctors and the hospital caused or contributed to the health issues she has suffered. She had to undergo a total hysterectomy, has been forced to spend the first seven months of her son’s life in hospital, and is now a quadruple amputee.
The allegations have not been proven in court, and the IWK has not yet commented on the claims.
-Police are looking for a man who robbed a bank in Halifax wearing a hard hat and sunglasses. It happened at the Royal Bank on Almon Street around 5 p.m. on Tuesday. The man walked in and demanded money from the teller.
No weapon was seen, but the suspect fled after getting some cash.
He is described as a white man in his 50s, five-foot-10 with a white goatee. He was wearing a hard hat, sunglasses, a blue hoodie and jeans.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
