50% Of This Baby’s Body Is Burnt And He’s Struggling To Live

Baby Himansh was a little ball of energy. He was active, happy and his laugh resonated throughout the house. Vignan and Hemalatha couldn’t have asked for anything more for their baby. They felt truly blessed. However, 3 days ago, that laughter was silenced. A tragic accident has left 50% of Himansh’s body severely burnt. He’s now in the ICU, unconscious and clinging to life. His face, chest, hands and feet are completely burnt. Baby Himansh is on ventilator support and only further ICU care and medical attention can save his life now.

In a split second, tragedy befell the little one

My wife had taken him to the bathroom to bathe him. There was a bucket of boiling hot water kept for everyone to use. In the split second that she turned around to pick up the mug, Himansh had playfully pulled the bucket on him. All the boiling water fell on my little baby. He screamed in pain as the water fell on his face and chest, burning him completely. That was the most painful cry I have ever heard. I will never forget it.”

Baby Himansh is fighting for his life

Himansh was immediately taken to the ICU. His body is in severe shock. He’s being closely monitored due to the seriousness of the condition. If he catches even a small infection, Himansh won’t make it. It’s crucial for him to stay protected from any danger in the ICU. Antibiotics and ventilator support are keeping him alive for now, but Vignan and Hemalatha don’t know how long they can keep him there.

The happy family before the tragic accident

His parents are devastated beyond words to see their once active child lying unconscious in a hospital

My wife hasn’t spoken since the incident. All she does is cry all day thinking of Himanshu. I think she blames herself for what happened. I’ve tried to tell her that it wasn’t her fault, but nothing seems to make her feel better. When we go to see him in the hospital, we both break down.  Our baby’s body was fully red because of the burns. Within two days, all his skin started peeling off. We’re shattered. I see Hema quietly praying for him every day and it breaks my heart. We need more than prayers to save our son now.”

Vignan and Hemalatha breakdown every time they see their son

Vignan and Hemalatha are devastated. They often find themselves speechless, unable to talk about what they’re going through. Their uncontrollable tears speak for them. Not only are they worried for their only child’s life, but the stress of affording his treatment constantly loom over them like a dark cloud.

They can’t afford to save their only child on a meagre income

“We’re both daily wage workers. We earn enough to feed our family. We don’t have the means to pay lakhs for our son’s treatment. As the days go by, his bills are only piling up. The doctors tell us that treatment should not be stopped because he can make it, he deserves that chance. It kills me inside to think that if I can’t pay for his treatment, we will lose him forever. We will never get to see that smile again."

Hemalatha prays for her baby's recovery every day

How You Can Help

Vignan has already spent 2 lakhs on Himansh’s hospital bills with a little help from his relatives, but it’s not enough. Himansh needs 15 lakhs to stay in the ICU for 4 weeks. He will need multiple dressings for his wounds and continued medication. Their baby can be saved with hospital care, but their poverty is standing in the way of his recovery.

Your support can save baby Himansh’s life.
