A newborn baby girl died in India’s northern Punjab state after doctors removed her from an incubator that her parents couldn’t afford. The incubator cost the hospital 200 rupees ($3.60).

A premature newborn girl was in critical condition and needed incubator support in order to live. Two days after placing her in the incubator, hospital officials demanded that the family pay 200 rupees towards electricity charges.

Unfortunately, the baby’s father, Sanjiv Kumar was an unemployed painter and couldn’t pay the amount on time.

“We begged and pleaded with them to keep our child alive in the incubator and that we would pay them the money later,” a distraught Kumar said.“But they refused.”

When the family was unable to pay, nurses took away the saline drip, while officials removed the baby from the incubator, causing her to die three hours later.

“They killed my child,” the baby’s mother Sunita Kumar said.“I pleaded that my husband needed time to arrange the money, but to no avail and the baby was taken out of the incubator.”

The state chief minister, Prakash Singh Badal is currently investigating the “unfortunate” incident at the Civil hospital in Jalandhar. He has awarded compensation to the baby’s parents in the amount of $1,855, curiously enough to pay for the electricity of over 600 incubators.

Life is cheap for the poor in India, while their wealthy spend tens of thousands of dollars just for their wedding jewelry!
The wealthy in America are the most generous people in the world. Something like that would never happen here!

They also have a black problem in India.

" “This problem will never be solved” as long as Hindus feed monkeys regularly, said R. M. Shukla, the city’s chief wildlife warden.“We’ve issued many ads asking people not to feed monkeys in public places.”

In 2007, a Delhi deputy mayor died when he fell from his terrace after being attacked by monkeys, a widely publicized episode that spurred the city to step up its efforts to move monkeys to safer environments. Yet such attacks continue. This month a 14-year-old girl was seriously injured when she fell from the roof of a five-story residential building after monkeys pursued her.

“Monkeys do commonly bite people, and their bite wounds can be extensive,” Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in Bethesda, Md., wrote in an e-mail.“They are smart enough to often attack the face of the person.”

While monkey bites can lead to rabies or a fatal form of the herpes virus, documented cases are “close to nonexistent,” Dr. Fauci wrote. Skin bacterial infections from bites are common, however. They are treatable with antibiotics."

Uncle Daddy's Little Sweet BOI,

Nobody here can figure out why the Folks at Topix allow your debauched self is allowed to post on this site.

Even those that do not despise your existence, Like Mommy and Her Brother, your Daddy, still cannot defend your Psychotic Delusions.

You Racist POS, what is wrong with Topix to allow an abuser Racist like you to continue on their site?

And you NEED to talk about deviant sex, racism, and dead children.

Your soul is corrupted, and you have been turned over to your reprobate mind. God Despises you, and Jesus has never known you, and Allah would Castrate you before he Beheaded you.....you are worse than the worst.

Sounds like the rat catchers of that region need to be retrained to shoot monkeys.
