On Monday, a doctor of Kalimela Community Health Centre (CHC) rushed to the house of a pregnant woman and carried her on a cot covering a distance of 30 km to the CHC in Malkangiri, showing an exemplary example of service.

Dr Radheshyam Jena reached the house of the pregnant woman Rinama Bare in Kodidulagundi village under Kurmanur panchayat to assist her in delivery. She went into labour in the morning and on being informed, Jena who was present near Kodidulagundi for a health camp along with his assistant Sukant Sahoo and health workers Dinesh Biswas and Sunadarmohan Tudu rushed to her village. Although Rinama delivered a baby boy, one more baby remained in the uterus.

As Dr Jena could not aid her further and condition of the woman started to deteriorate, the doctor and others carried her on a cot and walked for 30 km in hilly terrains to admit her in the CHC. Doctors in CHC said that the second baby had died in the uterus but the condition of the mother and the newborn is stable.
