A very dumb doctor in New Delhi, India had declared a newborn baby dead by mistake, however, his family discovered he was breathing while they were en route to his funeral.
The boy’s mother gave birth to twins Thursday in the Indian capital of New Delhi. After giving birth, the doctors said that one of the twins, a baby girl, was stillborn. Then they said that they boy was in critical condition, but two hours later, they had declared him dead, according to Praveen Malik, the twin’s grandfather.
After the gruesome news, the twins parents made their way to a cremation ground when they noticed that there were “some movements” inside one of the bags that the hospital gave them with the babies’ bodies.
“When we opened the bag, we found the boy breathing. I was shocked. I couldn’t believe my eyes,” Malik said.
The newborn is now is being treated at a nursing home in New Delhi. “We don’t want to keep our baby at Max hospital. We don’t trust the doctors there,” Malik said. “They betrayed us.”
According to a hospital statement, they claim that the boy was “handed over without any sign of life” by staff.
The news had echoed to the state government as the Health Minister, Satyendar Jain, tweeted that he has ordered an inquiry “into this unacceptable act.”
In addition, the Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, has also tweeted saying that the authorities would take the “strongest action” if someone is found at fault.
“We want the Delhi government to take strict action against the hospital authorities for their negligence,” the boy’s grandfather said.
The whole story seems shady from the hospitals perspective and if they are really going by their released statement then those doctors in that hospital should not be doctors at all. This is not a mistake that just happens. Either these so called doctors didn’t know what they were doing at all or they wanted worse for the newborn.
