The baby who was found alive after being declared dead by Max Hospital earlier this week has died

The twins born in a private hospital were both declared dead, when the parents noticed one of the babies squirming inside the plastic bag that doctors placed the infants in.

The baby was born at the Max Super Speciality Hospital in Shalimar Bagh, New Delhi, last Thursday but pronounced dead two hours later, the boy's grandfather, Praveen Malik, told CNN. On November 30, a woman had given birth to the boy and a stillborn girl at the Shalimar Bagh hospital.

The family of the kid had alleged that Max hospital tried to bribe them to hush up the case.

State Health Minister Satyendar Jain tweeted last week that he has ordered an inquiry "into this unacceptable act".

Max Hospital in Shalimar Bagh can not take new patients for now, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said.

Breakdown of Friday snow - what you need to know
Huffman said some cold air is still moving in behind the cold front, causing temperatures to drop even lower Wednesday night. Light snow and rain has been spotted in and around the city of Lubbock but we have no accumulation of snow to report.

On the way to cremate the babies' remains, the family was shocked to discover that the boy was still breathing inside one of the bags holding the newborns' bodies. The infants were handed over to them in a polythene bag, they said. The baby died during his treatment at another medical facility in Pitampura on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the Delhi Police transferred the case related to the shocking incident to its Crime Branch for a detailed probe, a senior official said. But to their utter horror, the family found that the boy was still alive, while they were on way to do their final rites.

Max Healthcare fired the two doctors considered responsible earlier this week, but emphasized that the decision to let the doctors go should not be interpreted as an admission of guilt. The baby was found alive just moments before being buried.

The hospital had sacked two doctors involved in the case but has said its internal investigation was not complete yet.

Survival in extreme pre-term births is rare, Max Healthcare said in a statement today, expressing grief over the baby's death. "We wish them the strength to cope with their loss", the statement read.

The Indian Medical Association (IMA) also held a meeting regarding the negligence of doctors at the hospital.
