Deepak Agrawal, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at the AIIMS Trauma Centre commented on Baby Falak, "It was unexpected. She was fit to be discharged. All of a sudden, she had a cardiac arrest at nine and we tried to revive her. But then she gave up at around 9.40 PM."
Baby Falak was in an extremely critical condition after she was brought to AIIMS completely battered. She had grievous head injuries and human bite marks all over her frail body. She had a broken arm and her cheeks were brandished with an iron rod. [Read: Real mother of battered baby Falak in trap of Delhi cops]
The extremely sensitive case saw Baby Falak undergoing 58 days of treatment enduring blood, chest and brain infections. She underwent as many as six surgeries and was also put on ventilator at times. She had also suffered two heart attacks earlier.
Dr Agarwal added, "The whole day she used to spend time playing with the nurses at the hospital. She was responding so well to the treatment and her condition had become good that we had even decided to discharge her from the hospital this week. All of a sudden she had a cardiac arrest.”
Her condition was so critical that in spite of the progress she made during the course of treatment, she would only live in a vegetative state because of the large extent to which her brain was damaged.
