Burmese baby dies at birth after parents unable to afford Thai hospital

A Burmese worker stranded in Chiang Rai delivered his wife’s baby yesterday due to lack of money for hospital treatment, only to see the newborn die during the birth.

 

Police sent rescue volunteers and Mae Sai Hospital medics to the scene after being notified of the incident.

 

Medics found husband and wife, Phu Mong Mong and Mawin Khai, grieving for their dead infant. They explained that because the border was closed, they could not return to Myanmar and had to go to a Thai hospital to give birth.

 

However, since they had little money and no right to free medical treatment, they chose to deliver the baby by themselves.

 

Police found nothing suspicious and doctors reported the death as natural. Local authorities are funding the funeral rite.

I thought that hospitals by law cannot refuse emergency/urgent treatment.

That is tragic, so unavoidable. Shame on you Thailand, that you let such things happen. I know of a sick Laos lady, who cannot get any basic treatment, although she is here legally to work. They want the low cost Asian workers, but they are not prepared to give them the very basic level of care, or protection, when they need it.    

Have you paid for her treatment?
