HOUSTON, Texas- A 4-year-old was severely injured after a visit to the dentist.
“It’s heartbreaking. It really is like… I never in a million years would have thought something like this would happen,” said Derrick Hall, the girl’s father.
Two months ago, 4-year-old Nevaeh was taken to a dentist to have a tooth pulled.
During the procedure, KTRK reports that she began having seizures and suffered severe brain damage.
“You could have easily said, ‘What’s going on? This is what possibly could be going on, you know? Nothing, nothing,” Hall said.
Now, Nevaeh’s parents say she can’t talk, walk, eat or see.
“At this point, there’s nothing else that can be done to get that same 4-year-old back. It hurts to see her like that,” Courissa Clark, Nevaeh’s mother, said.
Jefferson’s license was suspended, and now Nevaeh’s parents say they are planning to sue.
