New Delhi: Struggling for survival at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) the brutally battered baby Falak has become a subject of research for doctors.  “Facing heart attack twice in her infancy and still battling for life is a miracle,” says Nurosurgeon Dr Deepak Agarwal.

Interestingly, claiming it to be an exceptional case, doctors at AIIMS are considering it as a research topic. Falak was admitted to AIIMS on January 18 with a fractured skull, bruises and human bite marks all over her body

Talking to Dainik Jagran Deepak Agarwal said, “Despite several injuries and facing heart attack twice within a months period, baby Falak is still alive. This is nothing less than a miracle. Surprisingly, adults succumb to heart attack after trauma.”

Baby Falak had first heart attack on January 20 and consecutively second attack on 21.  Besides, she has not been able to overcome infection of brain, heart and blood. “If she is able to survive, then definitely her case will become a research topic,” said Agarwal.

According to Agarwal, every individual has a different genetic composition and it depends upon particular genes to make them less susceptible to diseases and fight physical damages.

“The girl is really courageous. Having so many serious injuries she is still battling for life.  Her strong immune system has played a vital role in her survival so far. There still remains scope of improvement in her health condition,” said Agrawal.

“We are trying to make her less dependent upon ventilator support. It is likely that within 72 hours we can again remove her from ventilator,” added Singh.
