Mayurbhanj: A woman gave birth to a baby girl in an auto-rickshaw on her way to a hospital in Rasgovindpur block in Mayurbhanj district on Monday.
The woman identified as Minakhi Hembram, wife of Salakk Hembram, of Bhedisahi village under Rasgovindpur block in the district, complained of labour pain this morning.
Following this, the family members informed the village ASHA worker, who then contacted 102 ambulance service. But after repeated attempts they failed to connect to the emergency service helpline.
