Odisha: Expectant Mother Delivers Baby Near Lift Door In Puri Hospital

21 April 2019


Puri: In a shocking incident, a pregnant woman Lekhuni Barala of Brahmagiri had to deliver on the floor outside the lift in Puri District Headquarter Hospital (DHH) here on Saturday night.

According to reports, the woman was in labour pain and was rushed to the hospital in 108 Ambulance by her family members. After reaching the hospital, she was in intense pain and sat near hospital lift, where nurses delivered her baby at 9:45 pm.

While both mother and baby are healthy, her family members have alleged that neither did Lekhuni get a stretcher nor was the lift man present on spot. On top of that, the lift wasn’t working, they said.

On the other hand, Additional District Medical Officer (ADMO) Dr Brajabandhu Das said that an inquiry will be made into the matter.
