En Route To Funeral, Newborn Declared Dead Found To Be Alive

En Route To Funeral, Newborn Declared Dead Found To Be Alive

Ashish alleged that the Max hospital was trying to get rid of the babies when he said that he can not afford the amount given by the hospital.

On its part, the Delhi government has ordered an enquiry into the horrifying incident and has sought a report on it. One of the twins was later found to be alive when the parents were on their way to perform the last rites.

The family has alleged that the babies were declared dead after they expressed their inability to pay the exorbitant fee for their treatment. "When I opened the parcel, we realised the baby was breathing".

"After they were declared dead, the babies were given to us in packets".

The hospital made the family wait for around three hours before informing them that the boy had also passed away.

Earlier in the day, Union Health Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda also asked the Delhi Government to take necessary action over the Max hospital's negligence.

Meanwhile, babies' grandfather Praveen Malik said: "The hospital authorities stated that our child needed to be put on the ventilator as his condition was deteriorating".

The extent of the damage is not clear yet, although the TV report spoke of "material losses" at the base. In it, he addresses Iran's attempts to entrench itself in Syria and says Israel will not allow it.

"An inquiry regarding the said incident is to be initiated and a preliminary report is to be submitted within 72 hours and a final report within a week", a Delhi government order read.

The relatives sat in protest outside the hospital last night, saying they continue to sit there until an action is taken against the hospital administration.

"The caller said one Varsha, wife of Ashish, was referred to Max Hospital from a nursing home in Paschim Vihar on account of the possibility of premature delivery", the statement said. This baby was one of the twins delivered on morning of November 30.

The Max Hospital in a statement on Friday said, "It has been brought to our attention that a premature (22 weeks), newborn baby who is reported to be on life support at a nursing home was unfortunately handed over without any sign of life by Max Hospital Shalimar Bagh". The other baby was still-born.

A case has been registered under Section 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

"We are shaken and concerned at this rare incident".

"We can have the doctor's name struck off from the national registry of doctors, based on our investigation", says Dr Girish Tyagi, registrar of Delhi's Medical Council.
