Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at Broussard's Mortuary in Nederland for 4-day-old Olivia Marie Coats. 

Olivia died Jan. 1 at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston. She was born on Dec. 28 at The Medical Center of Southeast Texas in Port Arthur.

Olivia's parents, Rachel Melancon and Allen Coats, say Olivia suffered injuries including a fractured skull and severed spinal cord. They believe the injuries, which were caused by forceps during delivery at a Port Arthur hospital, contributed to her death.

Olivia was eventually delivered by C-section and taken to the Houston hospital where she was placed on life support.
