Family killed in crash: District administration will bear all costs of newborn

The district administration of Mymensingh took the responsibility for the newborn baby, whose mother crashed by a truck after giving birth to her on Saturday.

The accident also left the baby girl’s father and sister dead on the spot.

Deputy Commissioner Md Enamul Haque confirmed the matter on Saturday night while visiting the infant at Labib Private Hospital in Mymensingh where she is currently undergoing treatment.

“From now the district administration will bear all the cost related to her nourish, including her medical expenses. Necessary steps will be taken after talking to the child’s family,” Enamul Hoque said.

He said some rich people have already provided their helping hands for the baby girl. It is a responsibility for all to provide assistance to the helpless.

She is being breastfed by women at the hospital who have recently given birth.

On Saturday (July 16), Jahangir Alam, 40, went to Trishal upazila headquarters with his eight-month pregnant wife Ratna Begum, 30, and their six-year-old daughter Sanjida for some medical tests of his wife.

A Mymensingh-bound goods-laden truck crashed the three when they were crossing road. At that time, the abdomen of the mother got fractured and the baby came out of it. Though the baby girl survived miraculously, both of her father and mother died.
