Who is Micah Gillings? “Healthy” Teenager dies after Doctor reads wrong X-ray.

Micah had previously complained of a persistent cough. 

Micah Gillings, 19 years old, drooped dead after being found with an enlarged heart while he was cooking dinner. This was after his doctor read him a wrong X-ray, an investigation revealed.

Micah had previously complained of a persistent cough.

However, when he went for a follow-up appointment two months later, the medic accidentally studied an eight-year-old X-ray report, which did not include the abnormality.

Micah was supposed to study business at Manchester Metropolitan University in September with his family and friends only having amazing things to say about him. He was described as “a joy to be with” and a talented basketball player who was “loved by everybody”.

Micah was told that he was healthy but collapsed and died just four months later(after his misdiagnosis) at his home in Cambourne, Cambridgeshire while cooking dinner for his girlfriend.

He died from a suspected rupture of his aorta.

Micah’s mum, Natasha Gillings has previously said that she believes her son had Marfan Syndrome, a genetic condition that can weaken the heart and aorta.
