(INDIANAPOLIS) - A Marion County jury has awarded $5 million to a Mooresville woman who still experiences ill effects from a misdiagnosis nearly a decade ago at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.

27-year-old Roxxanna Smith arrived at the emergency room in July 2000 with a ruptured diaphragm after playing softball.

But doctors instead diagnosed a urinary tract infection and muscle strain, and sent smith home.

The misdiagnosis eventually led to emergency surgery and the removal of a third of her stomach.
