A woman gave birth in a bathroom at the People’s Medical College and Hospital in Nawabshah, Sindh on Friday, her baby dying after falling down the toilet.
Aasia Masih, a resident of Sanghar, gave birth in a bathroom at the hospital’s gynecology ward, Express News reported.
However, the baby fell down the toilet and died. The baby’s body was stuck in the toilet for four hours before it was retrieved. The hospital staff had to break the toilet bowl to take out the body.
Aasia and her family blamed the doctors at the hospital for the incident, accusing them of negligence.
Last month, a woman had to give birth on a street outside the Tehsil Headquarters Hospital Raiwind, Punjab because there were no doctors at the medical facility.
Brick kiln labourer Mohammad Amir took his wife to the hospital at 7am for an emergency delivery, but its staff did not let him inside telling him that there were no doctors available. The woman gave birth to a daughter outside the hospital.
