Officer dies from miscarriage after work


09:11, March 15, 2013

The death of a female police officer due to a miscarriage after work has aroused public discussion on the safety of female workers.

Ye Handan, a 26-year-old police officer in Wuxi, East China's Jiangsu province, died in the early morning of March 7 from a hemorrhage before birth giving. She had the hemorrhage while she tried to drive to the hospital at night after work.

She was diagnosed with gestational hypertension, and was expecting the baby on March 12. But she had a stomachache after work on March 6, and called her husband, also a police officer, who was on duty that night.

Ye's husband said he didn't expect she would choose to drive herself to the hospital or die from the hemorrhage.

Zhang Rongya, a gynecologist at Peking Union Medical College Hospital, said on her Sina weibo account that Ye's stomachache was probably caused by the deterioration of gestational hypertension, and the correct choice was to call for emergency aid instead of driving alone to the hospital.

The Law of Women's Rights Protection, issued in 2005, stipulated that an employer must not make female employees do work that doesn't suit their physical character, and must protect their safety and health at work, especially during pregnancy or lactation.

Some people also suggested online that employers such as police stations should ban female workers from working when they are about to give birth, while not cutting their wage.
