Pregnant woman dies due to untimely rescue

Kathmandu : A pregnant woman has died in Gorkha district. Hise Doma Lama, 25, of Chumchet in Chumanubri Gaonpalika-6 on Thursday as she could not be rescued, said Kumari Gurung, vice-chairperson of the village. She said pregnant woman died before the rescue helicopter arrived.

The village municipality had informed the District Administration Office at around 12:30 on Thursday to rescue Lama, who was in labor, on Wednesday night.

The Ministry of Women, Children and Population had sent a Nepal Army helicopter to rescue the pregnant woman at around 3 o’clock. However, Vice President Gurung said that she died before the helicopter arrived. She said that the rescue operation was cumbersome and the helicopter could not be retrieved in time.

“It must have taken about four hours to complete the process,” she said. She said that even the helicopter sent by the ministry had difficulty in landing due to thick fog.

There is no other option but to send a woman in labor to Kathmandu for delivery by helicopter in the village municipality of North Gorkha which is not connected to the road network.
