She gave birth to the baby in front of the Tirupati maternity ward

Tirupati:

A video showing a woman giving birth on a road near a hospital in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh has gone viral on social media. The video shows women holding a sheet to cover the pregnant woman as a man helps her deliver.

The woman is seen screaming in pain.

The woman was forced to give birth outside the 100-bed maternity hospital in Tirupati, allegedly after being refused admission by staff. The woman was reportedly told by hospital staff that they could not admit her as no one was accompanying her.

The strangers came to her rescue after the woman started experiencing labor pains after being discharged from the hospital. The man who helped her give birth is said to work in a primary health centre.

The woman and baby were later taken to hospital, officials said.

Tirupati District Health Officer Srihari said an investigation had been ordered into the incident and action would be taken against those found guilty.

He said no pregnant woman will now be refused admission, even if she comes to the hospital unaccompanied.
