An anaesthetist has been arrested on suspicion of rape after allegedly carrying out the assault on an unconscious woman’s mouth while she was on the operating table.
Images from a concealed camera appear to show Giovanni Quintella Bezerra sexually assaulting the woman while doctors performed a caesarian on her.
He was hidden from the other medics’ view by a sheet at the time of the alleged offence but suspicions were raised due to the way the sheet was moving, as well as the unusually large dose of anaesthetic that the patient had been given.
Bezerra’s colleagues moved the procedure, the third of the day, to a different operating theatre at the Hospital da Mulher in São João de Meriti, Rio de Janeiro, where they had set up a hidden video camera.

Footage from the camera showed the 32-year-old apparently placing his penis in the patient’s mouth.
After some ten minutes, Bezerra appeared to zip up his trousers before wiping the woman’s mouth with a tissue.
Based on the doctors’ evidence Bezerra was arrested this morning (Monday, July 11) on a charge of rape of a vulnerable person, which carries a prison sentence of up to 15 years.
In a statement, the Health Foundation of the State of Rio de Janeiro and the Secretary of State for Health said: “We inform you that an internal investigation will be opened to take administrative measures.
They added that “full support” was being given to the victim and her family.
The authorities are currently trying to trace other potential victims.
Clovis Bersot Munhoz , president of Regional Council of Medicine of the State of Rio de Janeiro [Cremerj] described the shocking incident as "absurd".
Bezerra himself has said that he refuses to enter a plea until he has had an opportunity to review all the evidence against him.
