In another shameful incident for the health administration here, a woman delivered a baby girl in a moving auto-rickshaw in Bhaluguda under Dabugam block in Nabarangpur district on Wednesday.
According to reports, the woman, Rukumani Gouda, of Bhalluguda village suffered labour pain on Tuesday morning. Her family members called the 102 ambulance service to take her to the hospital.
They telephoned Dabugam and Papadahandi ambulances, but both the ambulances were not in running condition. Later, they contacted Maidalpur ambulance, but due to poor road connectivity the ambulance failed to reach her village.
In the meanwhile, the family members found an auto rickshaw to take her to the Dabugam Community Health Centre (CHC).
While going through the jerky roads in the auto rickshaw, the woman delivered a girl child in the auto-rickshaw after travelling 3 km on her way to the Dabugam (CHC).
The family members said that after the delivery, both the woman and the new-born were admitted to the CHC and their conditions were said to be stable.
