Lucknow: Newborn dies after slipping from nurse’s arms at private hospital
A newborn child died after he fell from the arms of a nurse at a private hospital in Chinhat, Lucknow.
The incident took place when, after the delivery, the nurse lifted the baby without wrapping him in a towel, after which he slipped and fell to the ground.
The family heard the mother screaming and tried to get into the labor room.
The hospital authorities tried to stop them but they somehow managed to enter the room where the mother told them that the child was born healthy, but the nurse present there was holding him in one hand, after which he fell.
The family members alleged that the doctors and staff of the hospital had fabricated a false story to suppress the death of the child as the hospital authorities stated that he was stillborn.
They filed a complaint at the Chinhat police station in this regard. After that, the police sent the child’s body for a post-mortem. In the report, it was revealed that there were injury marks on his head.
Police registered a case based on the post-mortem report.
