Boy Mistaken for Dead

An oxygen mask was put on the face of a dead child in an attempt to hide the truth. In Calcutta, India the father of a one-and-a-half-year-old baby who died at the district hospital has accused the hospital staff of medical negligence. The allegation comes 24 hours after eight members of the medical staff at the hospital were shown to have caused for the death of a newborn.In this tragic case, it appears that the staff had mistaken the little boy for dead. As a result the child received no treatment for 12 hours and died the next day. Frightened doctors actually put an oxygen mask on the dead child and kept it there for an hour before declaring the child dead at noon.
