A British nurse is currently on trial for the death of seven babies at the Manchester Crown Court in northern England. Through the hearing, it was added that one of the mothers of the killed infants had pleaded to medical professionals to try and save her baby boy.

Accused of killing about seven babies is Lucy Letby. The British nurse has pleaded not guilty to a total of 22 charges, including the murder of five boys and two girls at the Countess of Chester Hospital between 2015 to 2016.

Aside from this, the 32-year-old nurse is being accused of attempting to kill 10 other babies.

Attorneys for the UK government’s Crown Prosecution Service claimed that Letby had injected air into the bloodstream of two infants, BBC reported.

Both were referred to as child A and child B. The first baby, a boy, died at the hospital and the scale of involvement of Letby has yet to be determined.

"The minute I went into that room and saw the baby boy, I knew he was gone," the grandmother of child A said to the courtroom on Monday. "He was blue."

Further, the child’s mother had also pleaded with medical professionals to save her son.

"Please don't let my baby die, please don't let my baby die," the mother stated.

The father of the child was also left in shock and left like a statue when the infant boy died.

Child B, a girl, suffered a similar fate but was able to recover.

Prosecutors also added that notes were found at Letby’s home that read she was evil and killed the babies on purpose. There were also notes that read “protestations of innocence.”

There was also one that read: "I haven't done anything wrong and they have no evidence so why have I had to hide away?"
