In a case of gross negligence, a para-medic at a government hospital in Rajasthan botched a delivery case by pulling out the baby so hard that it split it into two parts. What came out was a torso while the head o the baby was left in the womb.
After the botch-up at the Ramgarh health centre in Jaisalmer, the para-medic and his colleague deposited the torso of the baby in the centre’s mortuary. Then they asked the family of the woman to take her to Jaisalmer for further treatment.
The health centre staff also lied to the gynaecologist at Jodhpur Umaid hospital that they were done with the delivery. They even left the placenta in the womb.
When a team of doctors headed by Dr Ravindra Sankhla operated upon the woman again, they were shocked to find the baby’s head in the womb.
The woman’s relatives were informed and her husband lodged a complaint against the Ramgarh hospital staff. No arrests have been made so far.
Now, the woman is said to be battling for her life at the hospital.
