'Dead' newborn baby found alive before cremation in India, two doctors fired

'Dead' newborn baby found alive before cremation in India, two doctors fired

The second child was stillborn; the first was declared dead a short time later.

According to a local report, a police complaint was also filed against the hospital alleging that the doctors demanded $77,000 for keeping the surviving baby in the nursery till it was out of danger.

Two doctors were fired Monday from a hospital in Indian capital New Delhi for mistakenly declaring a newborn dead.

But when they were driving to the cremation ground, the family noticed one of the bags moving and found the little boy still alive. "We ripped it open, found bits of plastic and the baby inside, breathing".

According to The Hindustran Times, the boy's father, Ashish Kumar, alleged the doctors who helped his wife deliver the babies requested Rs 50 lakh - about 75 cents in United States dollars - to keep the baby alive, and another Rs 35,000 - about $540 in USD - to sustain the chances of his wife's survival.

"Max super specialty hospital at Shalimar Bagh in Delhi has terminated the services of two doctors involved in the declaration of a 22-week-old premature baby as dead, while he was alive", said an official the hospital.

The family then rushed the baby to another hospital where, according to Indian TV, they were told it would cost 100,000 rupees (£1,150) for three days' treatment in an intensive care unit.

"We are shaken and concerned at this rare incident", the hospital said in a statement USA Today reported. "We are in constant touch with the parents and are providing all the support needed".

The hospital noted that while the termination of employment for two of the hospital's doctors reflects a "commitment to higher standards of care", it is not a statement which finds the doctors at fault. Delhi's chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, ordered an inquiry and said he would take the "strongest action".

Meanwhile, Union Health Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda has asked the Delhi Government to take necessary action over the negligence of the Max Hospital.
