Doctors Who Declared Living Baby Dead Sacked

The baby boy and his twin sister were born prematurely at just 22 weeks, according to local media and NDTV, with the girl stillborn and the boy in critical condition.

Two doctors in Delhi, India, were fired on Sunday (3 December) after they wrongly declared a newborn baby dead, only for the infant to be found alive while being transported to a nearby crematorium.

He said the family had been preparing to perform the last rites in line with Hindu funeral traditions when a relative felt one of the bags wriggling in his lap. "We ripped it open, found bits of plastic and the baby inside, breathing".

Max Hospital in Shalimar bagh has chose to terminate the services of two doctors allegedly involved in the case of a premature baby being wrongly declared dead, the hospital said in a statement issued on Sunday night.

Their allegations are baseless. "Misusing the official government machinery is actually part of the SP, BSP and Congress culture. The three parties are indulging in this propaganda to hide their disappointment following the electoral losses", he added.

Delhi police said they were collecting hospital records for the mother and treatment records for the newborn babies. "Sought a report on shocking criminal negligence by Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh and directed Dept to conduct a inquiry into this unacceptable act", tweeted health minister Satyendar Jain.
