Following two similar occurrences in Lahore recently, another case of a woman giving birth on the road after being denied entry to a hospital was reported in Faisalabad on Saturday.

The Tehsil Headquarters Hospital Tandlianwala on the outskirts of Faisalabad turned away the expectant mother from the medical facility citing shortage of facilities and blood.

She gave birth inside a ambulance outside the hospital.

After the woman gave birth in the ambulance, she and the newborn were eventually admitted to the Tandlianwala hospital.
