A teacher of a baby girl who died from the complications of her pneumonia is blaming herself for the killing and wants the family to “be the ones to forgive.”
Samantha Bhatt, a mother of two, said in an emotional video on her Facebook page that she and her family did not have the “self-control” to allow the child to die from complications from pneumonia, which the child had contracted after a routine checkup on Oct. 1.
“I wish I had never been here, but I knew I had to do what I did,” Bhatt said.
“I have nothing to hide.
I don’t want to be the one to be blamed for this, but that’s what we are going to do.”
Bhatt said she and other parents were forced to “move forward” by their own negligence and that the family’s actions led to the child’s death.
The video, which has been shared more than 15,000 times, was made in response to a Facebook post from Bhatt’s daughter, who said she was not ready to move on with her life, because her “baby had just passed away.”
“I have no regrets at all.
I didn’t know I was going to get the flu, so I had no idea what I was getting myself into,” she said.
The girl’s father, who did not want to share his last name, said he was still recovering from the pneumonia.
“My whole life, I have been a little bit of a failure.
I was just a lazy, unorganized person,” the man said.
The man said he wanted to move forward in life but also wanted to live life to the fullest.
“As a father, I was very sad to see my daughter’s life ended.
But as a person, I just want to go forward and live my life.
I want to make my son happy,” he said.
Bhatt did not give her full name.
The family has not made an official statement.
