Information reaching faceofmalawi indicates that two pregnant women delivered on open ground at Mangochi District Hospital following fire accident that happened on Sunday at the hospital.
According to information at hand, the two pregnant were of course concealed by fellow women and kept out of the public view during the ordeal.
Another pregnant woman was spotted lying by the road near the Mangochi National Bank Branch about to deliver.
Well-wishers stopped a vehicle passing by and she was rushed back to the safer part of the hospital where she was quickly taken into a room to deliver where she successfully delivered.
The fire broke out at around 10:25AM immediately after Escom restored power which had been off in most parts of the areas around the Boma, including at the health facility.
The fire took over an hour to die down as well wishers – mostly from Mangochi Main Market – and the police toiled with buckets and hose pipes to put the flames out.
