'Stillborn' Baby's Fight For Life Ends In Tragedy

A doctor in Safdarjung hospital in Delhi had declared that a baby was stillborn last week. But the baby was alive and was placed in intensive care for most of the week before finally succumbing on Saturday.

Born to Rakesh and Bharti Babbar May 5, the baby was declared stillborn. But when Rakesh, an auto driver, took him to the burial ground, the boy started moving his hand and was later admitted to the intensive care unit of the hospital.

The baby was delivered after only seven months of pregnancy and weighed less than one kilogram. He was suffering from jaundice, said hospital authorities.

Meanwhile, an inquiry panel ordered by the hospital administration had charged two doctors with "error in judgement" for declaring him dead. A junior doctor was also directed to undergo a 15-day training on handling of newborn babies.
