Father forced to carry infant’s body after being denied ambulance service
A man was forced to carry the body of new-born baby in his arms after the hospital allegedly refused to provide ambulance in Odisha’s Malkangir district in India. The incident took place on Tuesday, reports ANI. Laxan Bhumia, the father of the deceased said he had to walk three kilometres to their village Bhairav Colony with his son’s body as the hospital denied to provide an ambulance for such a near distance. Laxan said: "My wife gave birth to a boy in the hospital but he was admitted in the ICU due to his serious condition. “The next day the doctor told us that the infant has died. “When we asked for an ambulance to go back to our home, we were denied saying it would not be provided for so near a distance." "We were asked to take an auto but we did not have money to pay so we had to come back walking carrying the body," he added. Laxan's wife was taken to the hospital in an ambulance when she was in labour. But unfortunately they did not get the ambulance on the way back home. However, Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO) Uday Shankar Mishra said: "Dead body carrier is available in the hospital, then why did he carry the body? “I will inquire and find out the reason," CDMO Uday added.
