In a shocking incident, the apathy of staff at a government hospital in Andhra Pradesh was exposed, when a pregnant woman ended up delivering her baby in an auto-rickshaw after doctors told her it was not time yet for her to deliver.
During the incident, which took place in Rajahmundry of east Godavari district, Ramalakshmi, who left the hospital after she was turned away, started having labour pains in the auto-rickshaw she was in.
Hearing her cries of pain, the staff of the hospital later came out and helped her deliver her baby in the auto-rickshaw.
Following the incident, the family members of Ramalakshmi became angry and agitated in front of the hospital.
The hospital superintendent denied that Ramalakshmi was sent away, and instead alleged that it was the family members themselves who decided to take her out from the hospital.
Meanwhile, an investigation into the matter has been ordered by the hospital administration to verify the facts.
