JIND: A woman today delivered a baby in an ambulance as she was being rushed to PGI Khanpur even as her family members accused the civil hospital staff of "negligence".

Sarita was admitted to the civil hospital last night after she developed labour pain but was referred to PGI Khanpur this morning when her pain increased. Her husband said that Sarita delivered the baby in the ambulance as they were passing Nuran Khera village.

Although the delivery was normal and both the woman and the child are stable, her family members claimed that they had pleaded with the doctors to not refer the woman to the PGI Khanpur.

After the delivery inside the ambulance, the woman and her child were brought back to the civil hospital.

Medical Superintendent Dr Anil Birla said they will probe the circumstances that prompted the doctors to refer the woman to PGI Khanpur.
