As the child did not respond after its birth, the husband wrapped it with a newspaper assuming it had died.
However, when the dentist arrived at the clinic, she noticed the woman lying on the pedestrian platform, bleeding and immediately took her to the clinic.
“When I went there, I saw the woman bleeding. I brought her inside and provided treatment. Then I checked the baby. After the resuscication process, the child came to life,” Dr Himanish told PTI.
Later, the doctor called an ambulance and sent the woman with the newborn to a government hospital for further treatment. Now, with both the mother and baby safe, people on Twitter applauded the dentist’s prompt action in saving their lives:
“In all my 18 years as a dentist, I have never had such an experience. While it was very tense when the whole thing took place, I am happy that everything turned out well though I do not know how this has come to the notice of the media,” Himanish told HT.
