Max Hospital baby blunder: Four medical staff questioned

39;Dead' newborn found breathing on way to crematorium

The hospital said: "We are shaken and concerned at this rare incident".

Police and government enquiries are under way and two doctors have been sacked following the incident at the Shalimar Bagh Max Hospital in north west Delhi.

But an hour later the baby's grandfather Praveen Mallik discovered that the body bag the child had been placed in was moving.

According to police, the focus of the questioning was to find out the specific duties of each team member and recreate the chain of events that led to the newborn being wrongfully declared dead, The Times of India reported.

While the twins were being taken for burial, they found the boy to be breathing inside one of the packages, police said. "I was shocked. I couldn't believe my eyes", Malik said in a previous CNN report.

The premature baby died at a nursing home in Pitampura after battling for life for almost a week since he was found alive on the way to be cremated by family members. "They betrayed us", Mr Malik said. "We are managing to maintain his vitals at the moment but the condition is very serious", Dr Sandeep Gupta, from the Centre, said.


"We did our best to save the child but we had to give up at about 12 in the afternoon".

"We wish to clarify that this action should not presuppose finding of any lapse by the expert group and should not be construed in any way to be anything other than an expression of our continued commitment to providing quality healthcare". "Had the baby not been exposed for so many hours after his birth, maybe we could have probably prolonged his life longer".

State Health Minister Satyendar Jain tweeted last week that he has ordered an inquiry "into this unacceptable act".

A panel formed by the Delhi government to look into the case on Wednesday found the hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborn infants.

He and his twin sister were born prematurely last week at the expensive Max Healthcare clinic in New Delhi.
