Police removed our child after we sought second medical opinion

A California couple who wanted a second medical opinion for their 5-month-old son said their ordeal turned into every parent’s worst nightmare. Authorities temporarily took their baby away from them, but the parents are now relieved to be able to hold their son again for as long as they want.

The story began a few weeks ago when Anna and Alex Nikolayev brought their son Sammy, who has a heart murmur, to Sutter Memorial Hospital in Sacramento. The family left the hospital without an official discharge to get another opinion on the boy’s heart condition, according to a report on TODAY Wednesday.

“I want to go to a different hospital and she told me again, ‘If you want to go, then you can go, but your son is going to be here,’” Anna Nikolayev told TODAY. “I took my son. Put him in the stroller. I just walked out of the hospital.”
