KOCHI: A young woman was struggling to breathe while her newborn lay close to her, wailing uncontrollably. The sight ached civil police officer Arya who stormed to the bed, took the wailing newborn and breastfed her to sleep. It was unusual for anyone to indulge in such a noble deed and that for a migrant lady.

The heartening scene took place in Ernakulam General Hospital on Thursday. The women's police station received information from the control room that the migrant woman and her four children were in the hospital without help. The SHO Annie Siva led her team to the hospital immediately after hearing the information. The ailing woman, a native of Bihar's Patna and a heart patient came to the hospital due to shortness of breath.

When the team reached the hospital, they saw a 13-year-old girl, another three-year-old girl, a five-year-old boy child and a four-month-old toddler accompanying the ailing mother. The Mother and children live in Mulavukad Ponnarimangalam. The ailing woman’s husband is presently lodged in jail so there is no help reaching the family in this time of distress.

The woman required ICU attention, so the hospital authorities dialled the police to take care of the children. Amidst this, CPO Arya’s attention fell on the incessantly crying toddler, awakening the mother in her.

The children of the Bihari family were brought to the Child welfare home in Ernakulam by the police as per the instructions of the CWC. They will be allowed to leave when their mother returns healthy from the hospital.
