Ambulance failure: Woman delivers baby on roadside
Phulbani: An expectant mother was forced to deliver her baby on the roadside near Sartaguda village in Kandhamal district today after the ambulance failed to reach on time.
The woman, along with her husband Dibya Kanwar was on her way to a relative’s house in Arapa when the labour pain started. Although Kanwar called up both 102 and 108 ambulance services, none could reach on time.
Left to fend for themselves, Kanwar erected a temporary tent with help of four sticks and helped his wife deliver a baby boy. Later an ambulance reached the spot and took mother and the child to the Phulbani hospital.
Condition of the duo is stable now, informed hospital sources.
