Baby who just had heart operation among those safely evacuated from PGH fire

A baby who just had a heart operation was among the many patients who had to be evacuated on Sunday due to a fire at the Philippine General Hospital in Manila.

Nurses of PGH and personnel of the Mandaluyong HEART Response Medic Team joined hands to ensure the baby was safe throughout the process, according to a report on Unang Balita on Monday.

"Pare, 'yung suction, pa-ready," one of the medics called out as seen in a video shared by chief medic Jayar Antiojo.

Antiojo said his cousin called him to say that a baby who recently had a heart operation at the PGH is getting weak and needed to be transferred immediately.

The medic team looked for the baby at PGH as patients were evacuated during the fire that started past 12 a.m. Sunday.

They immediately brought the baby in an ambulance to the National Children's Hospital.

The baby is now in stable condition at the said hospital. —KG, GMA News
