  1. Answer  :    Andrew was torn between saving the lives of the mother and the baby. After the birth, the mother was in a critical state and the baby had been born lifeless.In seconds, Andrew had to decide whom to administer the medical facilities first. Andrew quickly administered the Mother and gave her anesthesia for the pain.Then he determined form the paleness that the baby had been stillborn most likely due to pallidia or asphyxia.He applied a special and tedious treatment to save the baby.
