Baby Falak dies in AIIMS

News has just come in from AIIMS Hospital in New Delhi that India’s ‘Miracle’ baby, 2-year-old Baby Falak has died of a heart attack at 9.30 pm today ( Thursday, March 15). This news has deeply saddened the entire nation, which has been considering the little one as their very own 'miracle' baby..

Baby Falak had been brought to AIIMS Trauma Centre in Delhi on January 18, 2012 by a teenager in a badly battered condition with serious head injuries, bite marks all over her body and iron branding on her face.

It was due to the Delhi doctors’ yeomen efforts that baby Falak was brought back from the brink of death. Six life saving brain surgeries where performed on her during the two months she was in hospital. And every possible medical attention bestowed on her. After surviving two heart attacks she was called an exceptional case in medical history.

She had developed infection in the brain numerous times as also infection of the chest and lungs. Doctors and paramedics forming a deep bond with the young infant, battled day and night to save her life. They drained fluid from her spine to her brain, did everything humanly possibly to bring the comatose baby to life.

Doctors even succeeded in saving her life. At the same time they were never confident about her neurological abilities as her brain had been badly hit due to the battering. Baby Falak’s mother had been found, and she too visited the hospital to check on her child.

Just twenty days back the hospital authorities shifted India’s most loved baby from the ICU to the general ward as a first step towards discharging her from the hospital. However, twenty days after her recovery, today since afternoon Baby Falak’s heart rate began fluctuating. It may noted that due to the battering, the baby had suffered three cardiac arrests. May be the impact was felt today.

According to the doctors, Baby Falak suffered a heart attack at around 9 pm and passed away at 9.40 pm. The saddest day in the life of every Indian, all of whom have been praying desperately for her to live. But ultimately its God’s will. May you rest in peace little one in God’s gentle arms.

Meanwhile ten persons including the main accused Raj Kumar who had handed over the baby to the 14-year old girl have been arrested in the case. After hearing about Baby Falak's case, people from all over the world especially Canada, UK, US had called at the hospital offering to adopt the child and give her a stable home, so in a sense it will be a real sad day for them too.
