Selena and Angel's deaths
Nine days after Angel's birth, she suffered a brain haemorrhage which affected her breathing centre. On 14 September, she was deemed fit enough to be taken off the ventilator, but she struggled to commit to the new effort she had to make. The next day, Angel went into asystole, and paediatrician Andy Fishman decided to put her back onto the ventilator. Later that day, Nathan was informed that Angel had been diagnosed with an E. coli infection, and her kidneys were shutting down. Charlie and Andy warned him that Angel was beyond the point of recovery, but he refused to believe that his daughter was dying and demanded her to be kept ventilated. However, after Andy suggested that they take her off the ventilator and allow him to hold her during her final moments, Nathan began to accept her impending mortality and agreed. In a private room, Nathan cradled Angel until she passed away.
Less than an hour after Angel's death, Nathan returned to the ED and started berating the other members of staff for failing to run the department "smoothly", suggesting that, following the bombing the previous week, they would have "learnt [their] lesson"; this outburst resulted in Guppy's public resignation. After Nathan left, Charlie informed the team of Angel's death. (CAS: "Meltdown")
