Mother dies after doctors severe baby's head during delivery

The 32-year-old was later rushed to another hospital where doctors managed to remove the severed head from her womb, but could not save her life.

Geeta Devi, died at a government hospital, in Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh, northern India after doctors forcefully pulled on the body of her child during delivery, severing the baby’s head and left it inside the womb.

The 32-year-old was later rushed to another hospital where doctors managed to remove the severed head from her womb, but could not save her life.

She died in the early hours of Sunday, August 23.

Her husband, Hemant, 40, from Sadar Bazar, in Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh, said:

“It is the fault of the doctors. First they removed the body of my baby leaving the head inside and then they told us to take my wife to another hospital. They just left us. Eventually a local nursing home took my baby’s head out of my wife but she died. They could not save her.”

The District Magistrate of Shahjahanpur, Shubhra Saxena, said: “It is a severe case of negligence and we are investigating the matter.”
