A storage tank malfunction at University Hospitals Fertility Center that led to the inviability of 4,000 eggs and embryos has turned the lives of local families upside down. In the weeks that followed the March 3 tragedy, 950 patients discovered they had far more questions than answers. News 5 has been investigating since before the tragic news became public. This special, which aired on the evening of March 29, takes an in-depth look at what went wrong, and the fallout for the couples whose hope for the future has been shattered.
