The death of 31 year old Savita Halapannavar last October in Galway University Hospital is a story that shocked the nation. Savita was 17 weeks pregnant & died of Sepsis. Since her death her husband Praveen has been trying to find out what happened. The latest report was carried out by the HSE & since then Praveen has remained silent. Miriam travelled to Galway yesterday to meet Praveen & to ask how he is doing right now.
