Boat capsizes after Woman delivers a baby in it, loses the baby & his uncle

A newborn baby and his uncle died on Friday when a boat they were travelling in capsized at Wushishi  area of Niger State. The mother of the infant was said to have been travelling with her husband and a young male relative to a government-owned hospital from their community when she suddenly gave birth inside the canoe.

It was revealed that occupants of the boat had attempted to offload a motorcycle to avoid the baby inhaling petrol when it capsized, leading to the death of the newborn baby and his uncle.

Divers at the scene of the tragedy were able to rescue the woman and her husband alive but they could only manage to retrieve the corpses of the victims, which were subsequently buried along the river bank, in line with the culture and tradition of the area.
