A nurse at a government hospital in Rajasthan, delivering a baby, pulled so hard at the tiny body that it split and the head was left in the womb. The incident, which took place earlier this week, took on even more disturbing proportions as the male nurse and his colleague tried to cover up the crime.
After he botched up the delivery so horribly, the nurse at Ramgarh health centre on Jaisalmer deposited the baby's body in the mortuary without informing anyone that its head was left inside the woman's body.
The nurse asked the family of the woman to take her to Jodhpur for further treatment.
The woman was taken to the Umaid hospital in Jodhpur. The health centre staff at Ramgarh informed the Umaid hospital gynaecologist that they had finished the delivery and left the placenta in the womb.
When a team of doctors operated on the woman again, they were shocked to find the baby's head is in the womb.
The woman's relatives were informed and her husband filed a complaint against the Ramgarh hospital staff. No arrests have been made so far.
