New Delhi, Dec 6: A premature baby, who was delivered at Max Hospital and wrongly declared dead last week, has died during treatment, the police said.
The baby, born on November 30, died on Tuesday evening. DCP (Northwest) Aslam Khan confirmed the news.
A panel formed by the Delhi government to look into the case on Tuesday found Max Hospital guilty of not following prescribed medical norms in dealing with newborn infants.
The case relates to the birth of twins (a boy and a girl) on November 30.
The parents alleged the babies were declared dead by Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh but they later discovered that the boy was alive.
The parents said they were told by the hospital that both the babies were stillborn. The infants were handed over to them in a polythene bag, they said.
Just before their last rites, the family discovered that the baby boy was breathing, the police said.
On December 2, Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain had said the hospital's licence could be cancelled if a probe found it guilty of medical negligence.
