Ten Babies Eliminated In Fire At Maharashtra Medical Facility
Fire broke out at the Maharashtra healthcare facility at around 2 AM.
10 newborn children have died due to suffocation after a fire broke out at a healthcare facility in Maharashtra at around 2 AM.
Seventeen babies were admitted at the Special Baby Care System (SNCU) of the four-storeyed hospital in Maharashtra’s Bhandara district, about 900 km from the state capital Mumbai, at the time of event. Seven of them, who were confessed to the innate ward of the unit, were saved by the fire brigade authorities; those in the outgoing ward couldn’t be rescued.
All the babies were between a month and three months old, a doctor was estimated as saying by news agency PTI. “10 children died in a fire that broke out at the SNCU of Bhandara District General Healthcare Facility at 2 am today. Seven kids were rescued from the unit,” District civil cosmetic surgeon Pramod Khandate stated. A nurse initially saw smoke coming out from the neonatal unit, according to PTI, and she notified the physicians.
” There were fire extinguishers and personnel used them while trying to splash the fire. There was too much smoke,” Dr Khandate stated.
While the cause of the fire is yet to be verified, a brief circuit is believed to have triggered the blaze.
Patients confessed to other wards have been moved.
