2 newborns dead due to dysfunctional ACs in Haryana hospital
Two children died and four are in a critical condition due to dysfunctional ACs on account of voltage fluctuation at the civil hospital in Panipat city.
After the voltage fluctuation affecting the infants, they were immediately rushed to other hospitals in Panipat and nearby areas of Khanpur and Sonipat.
Due to unavailability of ambulances, the process of shifting the infants took quiet sometime.
“There has always been electricity in hospital but voltage has been low as a result ACs and machines aren’t functional. As soon as we came to know about this issue, we referred those two kids to another hospital. They died on the way in ambulance,” child specialist at civil hospital Dr Dinesh said.
Meanwhile, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Sant Lal Verma said, “We are facing voltage fluctuation in the area. A probe had been ordered in the case.”
