New Delhi: At least 7 new borns were killed after fire broke out at a children's hospital in Delhi's Vivek Vihar. The Delhi Fire Services officials said that a blaze erupted at the Baby Care New Born Hospital in East Delhi's Vivek Vihar area around 11:30 pm on Saturday and then spread to two adjacent buildings.

Twelve newborns were rescued from the hospital but seven of them died. Five babies are undergoing treatment at another hospital, informed the fire officials.

However, the tragic incident took away both the lives of the infants and the dreams and happiness of their parents.

A heartbreaking video of a father who lost her daughter in the tragic fire incident at the hospital surfaced on social media. The man lost his 12-day-old daughter in the fire incident and demanded action against the hospital for the tragic fire.

"The girl was 12-day-old. I consider the baby care responsible and also the hospital which referred here. I want justice for all the babies. I request the PM and the CM to ensure justice. I had saved money for the baby. I did not know that she would die," says the shattered man in the video.
