ORENBURG, February 9 (Itar-Tass) — An Orenburg district court has met in a preparatory session on Thursday prior to hearings into a lawsuit filed by two women against a hospital where the women were mistakenly swapped at birth 37 years ago.
"The plaintiffs claimed that they were swapped at birth at a maternity house in 1975. Both were brought up in the wrong families since they were born, the women said.
Representatives of the maternity house, the administration of the Belyayevsky district where the incident took place and witnesses came to court. After all of them had testified the court appointed court hearings for February 21, a court spokesperson told Itar-Tass.
The plaintiffs filed the lawsuit on January 30. The women who brought a lawsuit against the hospital claimed that they had been swapped at birth in the hospital's maternity department. Local people from the settlement where the two women live have confirmed the fact, saying neither of the two looks like any of her parents. The two plaintiffs who have been friends since childhood made a DNA test, which confirmed that they were brought up in the wrong families.
The victims angered by the hospital's carelessness have claimed three million rubles each from the hospital in moral damages.
