Madhya Pradesh: Woman delivers baby in tractor as govt ambulance fails to arrive

Panna: A 28-year-old woman gave birth to a baby in a tractor-trolley on Monday after an ambulance service operated by the government failed to arrive in time to take her to a hospital, kin says.

Her relative Santram Patel said the woman waited unsuccessfully for the state-run ambulance service, ‘Janani Express’ to arrive at Devgaon, where she lived, some 10 kilometres from Ajaigarh tehsil. ‘I called 108 (an ambulance helpline) four times at around 1 pm. I was told it will reach within 10 minutes. After the ambulance didn’t arrive for two hours, we brought her to Ajaigarh Community Health Centre by tractor-trolley, but she delivered midway,’ he said.
