Yoko Ono is admitted to hospital

Yoko Ono was admitted to Queen Charlotte’s Hospital in London on this day, suffering from stress.

Ono was six months pregnant, and there was concern that the drugs bust and adverse press coverage she and John Lennon had been receiving may have adversely affected their unborn baby’s health.

Lennon remained by her bedside throughout her stay. Unfortunately, Ono suffered a miscarriage on 21 November 1968. The unborn child was named John Ono Lennon II, and was buried by the couple in a secret location.
