(Scroll down for video) A baby has died and several others were injured after a hospital gave them laughing gas instead of oxygen, police in Australia said.

Bankstown police said that they have launched an investigation to determine how the gas lines at the Bankstown Lidcombe Hospital, were carrying the wrong type of gas.

A doctor at the hospital discovered the problem after the baby of Sonya Ghanem, died unexpectedly. Health Minister Jillian Skinner said that she ordered an investigation and all hospitals were inspected.

Skinner promised that the government will help all the families affected by the grave and sad error. Ghanem said that she felt her heart stop when she picked up her newborn son and he wasn’t moving.

She shook her son John Ghanem, and kept shouting for him to wake up, but he didn’t. Skinner said that all hospital lines were tested and they were found to be carrying oxygen and not nitrous oxide.

So far, it seems that what happened at the Bankstown Lidcombe Hospital, was an isolated incident. People across the country have called on Skinner to resign as health minister.

Another baby is still in critical condition with significant brain damage after inhaling laughing gas at the maternity ward of the hospital.

The bike was seized for the repeat driving license offense, and he was also charged for using a vehicle for an unsuitable purpose.

He is scheduled to appear before a judge at the Bradford Magistrates Court.

“Clearly, he didn’t expect to be seen or stopped again, and so he thought it was okay to ignore the police warning,” police wrote on Facebook.

(Scroll down for video) A cafe in Indonesia, is serving customers’ food in toilet bowls in order to promote toilet use.

Cafe Jamban in Semarang, installed toilet bowls around tables, which customers use instead of chairs.

They then use miniature toilet bowls to serve food swimming in murky gravy along with brightly colored cocktails. So far, the restaurant only hosts small groups who book in advance.

The owner of the restaurant, Budi Laksono, is trying to educate people about sanitation and encourage greater use of toilets.

Millions of people in the country are still living below the poverty line, and the country has one of the highest rates of open defecation in the world.

Defecating outside and not in proper toilets, raises the risk of spreading disease. Muslim clerics believe that the restaurant is inappropriate and against Islamic law.

Laksono assured that the food and everything in the cafe is carefully sanitized and hygienic.
