5-month-old declared dead found alive before cremation
New Delhi: A five-month-old aborted foetus was found alive after doctors at the Safdarjung Hospital here declared it dead and handed it over to the family members in a polythene bag.
The incident came to light, when a 28-year-old woman, in her fifth month of pregnancy, underwent an emergency operation after she was brought to the hospital bleeding heavily.
Family members, who were unwilling to be named, said the surgery was performed around 5.45 a.m. and half an hour later the staff told them that the baby was born dead.
While the family members were taking the baby to the cremation ground, they detected movements. On unwrapping the packet, family members discovered that the baby was alive and moving his fingers and legs.
Thereafter, immediately the family members rushed back to the Safdarjung Hospital’s Emergency Department and consulted the doctors. The baby has been admitted and is being treated.
The family members have accused the doctors of medical negligence. The medical authorities said they will try to find out the reason.
Here poop is the Break Fast
Bangkok: Yak…., would be the reaction if one sees it. But then to eat it! Oh my God! How filthy and shocking!, would be the natural response.

Wilhen Me Gun, in his part time vocation sells this sweetmeat and has good number of eaters as well, while there are those who still react, Yak.....! too.
Horse rides into the car
Jaipur: A tonga-pulling horse went berserk, apparently due to the blistering heat, and crashed into a car through the windscreen, in the Civil Lines area here, injuring itself and the car driver. Passers-by and policemen had a difficult time getting the animal out of the car.
The incident took place in the afternoon when the temperature in the Pink City was hovering around 43 degree Celsius. Police said the horse was tied to the roadside by the tonga owner with a packet of fodder.
According to eyewitness accounts, the furious horse broke its harness and jumped onto the car coming in the opposite direction, as people ran to safety. The animal mounted the car’s bonnet and crashed into the wind shield. It remained stuck for about 10 minutes before the people dragged it out and rescued the car driver. Policemen and Forest Department officials joined in the rescue effort.
Car driver Pankaj Joshi suffered injuries on his arms and was discharged after being administered first aid. The horse is recuperating and veterinarians said its injuries were not very serious.
Mr. Joshi, who owns an event management firm, said he had just started his car near the Jaipur Club in the Civil Lines area when he heard a loud sound of breaking glass. “The next moment, I found myself stuck inside the car with a horse next to me,” he said.

New Delhi: The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has slapped several notices to the Rashtrapati Bhavan after mosquito-breeding was observed at many pools of stagnant water on the sprawling complex. The NDMC has so far issued over 1,100 notices – and 13 challans – to various buildings in the VVIP Lutyens’ zone, which were found to be “breeding spots” for mosquitoes by its surveillance team.
“Every year, we form a surveillance team whose inspection leads to notices being issued by the NDMC. If the situation doesn’t improve by the time of second inspection, challans are issued,” a senior official of NDMC’s health department said.
“We have issued several notices to various complexes and residential quarters in the President’s Estate over mosquito breeding,” the official added.
Last year, the NDMC had issued over 80 notices to the President’s Estate after “heavy” mosquito-breeding was found at various places on its sprawling campus, he said.
The number of notices issued to the President’s Estate was 125 in 2015. However, the exact number of notices issued to the Rashtrapati Bhavan this year was not immediately available.

Pak boy’s hand chopped off for asking salary
Lahore: A woman in Pakistan’s Punjab province has chopped off a 13-year-old boy’s right hand with a fodder cutting machine for allegedly demanding salary.
Irfan was employed at Shafqat Bibi’s house in Safdarabad at a salary of Rs 3,000, his mother Jannat Bibi told the police.
“Last week Shafqat Bibi got furious with Irfan when he demanded salary. She cut his right hand with a fodder cutting machine to teach him a lesson that he demands salary but doesn’t complete his job of feeding the cattle,” she said.

He was shifted to a local hospital where his condition is stated to be critical, his mother said.
The Safdarabad police refused to register a case when the family approached them.
