A Newborn baby, now four-day-old, has been hospitalised after fire from lantern burned his face and other parts of the body immediately he came out of his mother’s womb in Calabar, Cross River State capital, NaijaCover Reports.

NaijaCover, Gathered that the unfortunate incident happened on Saturday, November 14, 2020, when the kerosene lantern exploded, burning the newborn baby in turn – though not to death but with high degree of injuries.

According to Ijeoma Stella Aluka, who shared the ordeal of the baby on Wednesday to NAIJACOVER News Desk, Four Days after, the mother of the baby went to a Traditional Birth Attendant, TBA to give birth due to paucity of funds, when the ugly incident occurred and the baby was rushed to Victoria Medical Centre, beside Hi-Quality Bakery, Ndidem Usang Iso Road, Marian, Calabar, where he is currently receiving treatments.

Aluka said, although the woman had given birth successfully but the fire from a fallen lantern has turned the happy story to a sad one, NaijaCover Reports.

“I just came across this 4-day-old baby this afternoon at Victoria Medical Centre located at Marian Road just beside Hi-Quality Bakery…

“The mother went to give birth at one local home like that because of lack of funds to go to the hospital…

“…That there was a big lantern for illumination in the room and as soon as the baby came out the lantern mistakenly fell over and caused an explosion which in turn burnt the baby.

“I don’t want to imagine the pain the innocent baby is going through and that of even the ignorant mother is going through right now”, she said.

She further pleaded with the public for help to save the baby and support her mother. “Please, whatever you can do to help, please, I beg you, reach out.

“They are at Victoria Medical Centre at Marian, Calabar. You can reach out to them with help; whether pampers, baby milk, hospital bills, money for drugs – anything will help”, Aluka pleaded.

cry may the baby recover in peace.
May the family be consoled.

May we be careful, safe and free from unfortunate preventable situations,
In Jesus name, amen cry

Failed country, if there was constant electricity, that lantern wouldn't have been there.

Sorry little one, you will get well without scars.

The first day he stepped into the world he met this mishap, I know he will be blaming the angel that directed him to Nigeria.

Anybody who's fertile can give birth, but how many can be responsible enough to look after these children? Very few.
The cicatrices will leave an indelible feeling of parental carelessness on the child psychology

This is so sad
Carelessness of a nursing mother,
Now if this baby grows up and see his face burnt like this , just imagining the low self-esteem
Thank God it's no death threatening incident
what I don't get is the 4 days old baby came out, was the baby spiritually walking
