According to details, after enduring labour pain for 12 hours, a woman gave birth to a child in the ambulance in front of emergency ward of the DHQ Hospital. The hospital staffers failed to save the kid’s life due prolonged delay in requisite treatment.

According to the family, Naureen Bibi was brought to the hospital for delivery 12 hours ago but she was not operated upon. In Bahawalpur, the pregnant wife of a poor worker died along with her not-yet-born child due to transfusion of sub-standard blood.
