Newborn Baby tragically dies after Doctors quarreled for 30 minutes inside OR

The incident was captured on a cellphone video and has sparked anger not only among netizens but among fellow medical practitioners as well.

According to Metro UK, a fight broke out between gynecologist Dr. Ashok Neniwal and Dr. ML Tak at the Umaid hospital in Jodhur, Rajasthan in India last Wednesday, August 30.


Hours before that, the pregnant mother was rushed to the hospital due to complications.

But while inside the operating room, Neniwal and Tak clashed as the newborn’s heartbeat continued to plunge. The fight lasted for more than 30 minutes, reports said.

“You will pay for this”

The two doctors involved traded insults. One of them can be heard saying “Stay within your limits”, while the other shot back, “You will pay for this”.

The video was captured on a cellphone video by another medic who was present at the OR.

“The other doctor was arguing with me while I was trying to administer anesthesia on the child. I was trying to save its life. I have raised the issue with the principal,” Dr. Tak, one of the doctors involved in the fight, told CNN-News18.

The baby died during the Caesarian section from ‘severe birth asphyxia’ and Dr. Neniwal blamed his colleague for the tragic incident.

“The video shows the patient of another doctor, while my patient and her baby was in good health. The other doctors who were abusing me and laughing at my expense were not attending to their patient well, who died at the end,” Neniwal said in a separate interview.


Both doctors have been suspended by the hospital management after the clip went viral.

The Rajasthan health ministry has likewise launched an inquiry into the incident to determine who was responsible for the baby’s death and vowed to punish those who will be found guilty.
