Shahril Daud, 30, said he called a private hospital when his wife suffered labour pains at about 4.30am but was told to contact another hospital as his house was too far from the hospital.

“The second private hospital also rejected my request saying that their ambulances were not in service at that moment,” he said, adding that he then called Hospital Kuala Lumpur.
