Newborn baby wrongly declared dead by Delhi hospital, dies after 6 days

The hospital, meanwhile, said they are working towards completing their own investigations into the case and were likely to make the findings public by Monday.

However, it wasn't until the grieving parents were on the way to bury their babies when they noticed struggling from inside one of the plastic bags their bodies had been placed in.

In the meantime, the hospital terminated the services of two of its doctors, Dr. A.P. Mehta and Dr. Vishal Gupta.

An inquiry is underway, and if the doctors are charged and found guilty of attempted culpable homicide, they could face up to seven years in prison.

Delhi's Max Super Speciality Hospital that finds itself marred with a medical negligence case- wherein a newborn was declared dead, has now sacked the doctors responsible for the oversight. The other baby was stillborn.

"We are shaken and concerned at this rare incident", the hospital said in a statement USA Today reported. "We are in constant touch with the parents and are providing all the needed support".

The baby boy is now reportedly receiving treatment at the Delhi New Born Centre and is in a critical condition, according to news.com.au. Family members are unsure if the newborn will survive.

The newborn was taken to another hospital and put on an incubator to help him breathe, officials said.

Union Health Minister JP Nadda had directed the Delhi government to look into the matter, after which the government ordered a probe and sought a preliminary report within three days.

"The expert group set up by Max Healthcare to investigate the circumstances and protocols followed regarding the premature delivery (23 weeks/5 months) of twins and subsequent declaration of death at Max Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, is working swiftly towards concluding their detailed investigations". Video from the hospital also was being reviewed, police said. Health Minister Satyendar Jain called it a case of "shocking criminal negligence" and said the hospital's license could be canceled if medical negligence is found.
