Dr B B Gupta, superintendent of ESIC Hospital, said that he has asked for Majid’s records following her death.
The smoke may have also impacted her breathing,” said an official from Riddhi Vinayak hospital, adding that the fire aggravated her illness.
“She experienced problems in breathing until we reached Seven Hills Hospital,” Abdul said.
Idna Khatoon Abdul Majid was subsequently transferred to Seven Hills Hospital and then to Riddhi Vinayak Critical Care hospital, where she died on January 5.
The fire at the Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) Hospital in Marol claimed its 12th victim last week with the death of a 65-year-old Saki Naka resident, who had been slated for surgery on December 17 — the day the blaze erupted in the 325-bed hospital.
