Skull Fracture Caused By Vaccum Extraction

When my son was delivered the ventouse (malmstrom 50) "crushed" the skull bone in small, small pieces. In sweden, were I deliverd my baby, none has ever seen something like that happen. I wonder if you know how this could happen and if it has happen to other children. If you don´t know could you recomend someone that I could turn to.
