The Myanmar Times - - World -

A new­born baby has died af­ter be­ing given “laugh­ing gas” in­stead of oxy­gen in a tragic mix-up at an Aus­tralian hos­pi­tal which left another in­fant se­verely dis­abled, au­thor­i­ties said yes­ter­day. A doctor raised the alarm af­ter the baby boy died un­ex­pect­edly ear­lier this month, with tests re­veal­ing that an out­let in the wall at Syd­ney’s Bankstown-Lid­combe Hos­pi­tal was emit­ting ni­trous ox­ide in­stead of oxy­gen. Another baby is fight­ing for her life af­ter be­ing wrongly ad­min­is­tered the in­cor­rect gas in June.
