Doctor Cracks Baby's Skull and Spine During a Forceps Delivery - 'When he touched the top and side of the skull, we heard a pop, like clay cracking in pottery and heard her skull crush.'

Hard Day: Rachel Melancon and Allen Coats buried their five-day-old daughter today, who died after suffering injuries during birth caused by forceps

A young Texas couple buried their five-day-old daughter yesterday, after the doctor cracked her skull and spine with forceps during delivery. 

Rachel Melancon, 24, and her fiance Allen Coats wrote on a Facebook support page today how pleased they were with the turnout at the funeral in Port Arthur, Texas. 

'So many people came and donated and gave us support. We are standing here at peace because all of you! Y'all are truly carrying our pain in y'all's heart.'  

Since the infant's passing, family, friends and strangers have been rallying to support the young couple in their fight to sue both the obstetrician and the Medical Center of Southeast Texas. 

Four days ago, father Allen Coats started a Go Fund Me campaign for $20,000, with the proceeds to cover medical and funeral costs, as well as spread awareness about the damage forceps can do. 
    As of Saturday evening, the campaign had raised nearly $9,000 of that goal from 432 donors.
