Four Infants Killed In a Hospital Fire in Bhopal

Four infants died when a fire broke out in the Special NewBorn Care Unit (SNBCU) at Kamla Nehru Children's Hospital on the night of Monday, November 8. According to official reports and statements of Medical Education Minister, Vishwas Swamy, the fire broke out in the 3rd floor, housing the ICU, in all likelihood through a short circuit. It broke out around 9 pm, but by 10 pm the fire tenders had reached the spot. SNBCU housed 40 infants, of which 36 were in different wards for treatment. Upon reaching the location, the ward was dark inside from the smoke, and children were immediately shifted to the adjacent ward. 

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh directed a high-level probe in this matter of grave concern. The probe will be administered by Additional Chief Secretary of Health and Medical Education, Mohammad Suleiman. He announced an ex-gratia of 4 lakhs to the family of the deceased. He reported a swift rescue operation and proper immediate control of blaze to the media. 

The worried parents frantically ran in despair for their children's concern. Angry family members insisted that the hospital staff fled away instead of saving the admitted children from the fire. While a woman went out for her child, in the ward shrouded with smoke, some parents left the hospital immediately taking their children. 

KMC Hospital, a part of the Hamidia Medical legacy is one of the biggest medical facilities in the state. Such a concern puts their reputation and trust among patients at stake. Former Chief Minister, and leader of opposition, Kamala Nath demanded stern actions against those responsible. BJP state president, Vishnu Dutta expressed his misery and anguish and hoped for the speedy recovery of the affected.
