Army plays caregiver to baby girl

A 15-day-old baby girl has found a guardian in the Army, which today approached the police to find her parents. Recuperating at the neonatal intensive care unit of the 92 Base Hospital here since she was evacuated from the marooned GB Pant Children’s Hospital on September 8, the baby girl is being looked after by head nurse S Choudury and her team.

“Nearly 140 children, including newborn babies, were brought here after flash floods inundated GB Pant Hospital. She was one of them,” said Major AK Gupta, a paediatrician looking after the infant.

“The baby had symptoms of septic and hypothermia. We immediately started her treatment at the neonatal intensive care unit. She has stabilised since then and now her condition is improving,” he said.

“The baby was brought by her caretaker, who handed her over to us before leaving the Base Hospital in search of his family. Thereafter, he never returned,” he said. “Our staff had recorded the name of the caretaker who had brought this infant to us as Riaz Ahmed, a native of Tangmarg in Baramulla district,” he said.
