MUZAFFARGARH: A woman gave birth to a child while being shifting to a hospital here on Friday. However, the newborn died due to absence of medical facilities.
Sources said that a woman named Zareena Bibi, a resident of Dari Dholewala with labour pain, was being shifted to Tehsil Hospital Kot Addu, Muzaffargarh.
However, the woman gave birth to the child on the way to hospital. The newborn died due to lack of oxygen.
It should be mentioned here that there is no government dispensary or BHU in the Dari Dholewala due to which the dwellers have to shift their patients to bigger towns and cities.
