Her parents took her to a primary health centre in Madadakere, where a nurse advised them to take Lakshmamma to the District Hospital.

After waiting for an ambulance for hours, the patient’s parents started looking for a private vehicle which was also not available at the moment.

With no other option and Lakshmamma’s increasing labour pains, her parents had to take her in a sheep transporting tempo. She had to travel 35 kms to reach the hospital, as the vehicle went via H D Pur route, due to poor roads.

The woman was accompanied by her husband and three more women.
