In a botched delivery, two male nurses at a government hospital in Rajasthan's Jaisalmer district pulled an unborn baby so hard that it broke into two parts. 
To cover up their mistake, the staff deposited the lower half of the fetus in the hospital's mortuary and asked the family to take the woman to Jaisalmer, Hindustan Times reported. 
The doctor in Jaisalmer realised something was amiss when he was asked to remove the placenta from the womb. He further referred the woman to a hospital in Jodhpur. 
The doctors at the hospital conducted an operation and removed the foetus' head from her womb. The mother is fighting for her life in the Jodhpur hospital. 
Dr Surendra Duggar, who conducted the postmortem examination said he got the body in three pieces: head, torso and placenta.
"In order to bring the baby out, the nursing staff applied so much force that it not only broke into two parts but also caused multiple fractures in legs and liver got burst. We also have carried out a floating test of lungs which revealed that the baby was dead," he told Hindustan Times.
