Giovanni Quintella Bezerra Video
Giovanni Quintella Bezerra, a Brazilian anesthetist was arrested early Monday morning after being accused of raping a sedated patient during a cesarean section at the Heloneida Studart Women’s Hospital in Rio de Janeiro.
Staff at the hospital are said to have secretly filmed Giovanni Quintella Bezerra allegedly sexually assaulting a patient whose C-section surgery he was participating in.
Medical colleagues claim to have been suspicious of the doctor’s behaviour, especially the high doses of sedatives he allegedly gave pregnant women.
They decided to change the room one delivery was due to take place in at the last minute in a bid to secretly film him on a hidden mobile phone.
The medic had allegedly already participated in two surgeries in a room where filming was impossible.
But during the third surgery in the new room, they allegedly caught him in the act and called the police.
