Rajasthan: Baby split in half, head left in womb during delivery

Rajasthan: Baby split in half, head left in womb during delivery

The incident happened on January 7, when two male nurses posted at Ramgarh PHC, pulled the baby out so fiercely that the infant's head remained inside the uterus of the woman.

After that instead of informing the family about the tragedy, they took the remainder of the foetus to the mortuary and asked her husband to take her to a hospital in Jodhpur as she was in a critical condition.

The Hindustan Times said the nurse had pulled "so hard while attempting to deliver the baby that it broke into two parts".

After the incident, they asked family members to take the woman to Jaisalmer claiming that the opening of the womb had closed and it was hard to take the umbilical cord out.

Gynecologist Dr. Ravindra Sankhla said that the staff of the health center informed him that the baby's placenta was still inside the mother's womb. The hospital staff left the placenta in the womb.

Doctors reportedly then found the head of the dead baby inside the woman's womb during surgery and informed her relatives.

A case has been registered under Section 304 A (causing death by negligence) and Section 336 (endangering life of a person) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against Amritlal and Junjhar, police said.

"The doctor on duty Dr Nikhil Sharma, who was not called for the delivery, has been removed and put on APO (awaiting posting orders)", said Dr BL Bunkar, Chief Medical and Health Officer of Jaisalmer.

They later lied to the gynaecologist at Jodhpur Umaid Hospital that they had finished the delivery.

However, no arrest has been made in the connection with the case as yet.

The family reached Ramgarh police station on Wednesday and lodged a case against the two nurses.

"When questioned, the hospital staffers handed over the lower part of the foetus to us", he said.
