A 32-year-old anesthesiologist was taken into custody by local enforcement authorities in Brazil on July 13 after he orally raped a heavily sedated woman giving birth via C-section at a hospital in Rio de Janeiro.
The viral video recording shows the doctor, Giovanni Quintella Bezerra, who at that time in a cesarean procedure was assigned to look at the pregnant woman’s head.
He then went into cover, let loose his penis, and shoved it into the patient’s mouth while she was lying down and the other doctors were still performing the operation.
After Bezerra finished doing the act, he then takes a tissue and wipes the victim's mouth to conceal the evidence of his crime.
The hospital staff installed a hidden camera to watch over Bezerras' activities after developing suspicions and concerns about the dosage of medication the doctor was giving his patients. Through the video, the doctor was caught doing a pernicious deed to one of his pregnant patients.
A spokesperson of the Brazilian Society of Anesthesiology (SBA), Ana Cristina Pinho, said that Bezerra put both the patient and the unborn child in danger by administering more sedatives than was recommended for the pregnant patient.
“Deeper sedation without airway protection exposes the mother to the risk of bronchoaspiration of stomach contents. Therefore, sedation in obstetrics, when used, is synonymous with minimal application,” Pinho told CNN Brazil in Portuguese.
Pinho confirms that Bezerra is no longer affiliated with SBA and that they have revoked his authority to administer anesthesia.
"Today, he is not an anesthesiologist anymore. Since a meeting was held last night, it has been decided to suspend him indefinitely," said Pinho in the July 14 interview.
Police are still investigating whether the anesthesiologist has other potential victims. Once proven guilty of the crime, Bezerra will face rape charges and a prison sentence of 8 to 15 years, according to the local media outlet Globo.
