Two doctors fired after 'dead' newborn starts breathing on way to cremation

Two doctors fired after 'dead' newborn starts breathing on way to cremation

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 at a private hospital in Delhi, India were axed after they falsely declared 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. They opened the bag to find the live child.

Indian TV showed images of yellow plastic bags in which the bodies were reportedly wrapped by the hospital and returned to the family.

"While the inquiry by the expert group which includes external experts from the Indian Medical Association (IMA) is still in process, we have made a decision to terminate the services of two treating doctors, doctors AP Mehta and Vishal Gupta in the case relating to the twin extreme pre-term babies".

"I couldn't believe my eyes", said Praveen Mailk, the twins' grandfather to CNN.

New Delhi police are continuing to review hospital records as well as video footage from the twins' birth to better understand how the doctor's arrived at the conclusion.

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.

Speaking to ANI, Jain said, "As soon as we received the information, we started the enquiry into the matter".

The family alleged that the babies were declared dead after they expressed their inability to pay the exorbitant fees for their treatment. We have initiated a detailed enquiry, pending which, the concerned doctor has been asked to proceed on leave immediately. Delhi Health Minister had said on Saturday that the hospital might have to lose its license, if all charges were proved. "We are in constant touch with the parents and are providing all the needed support".
