The baby is reported to now be in good health
A premature baby has been found alive in a morgue, 12 hours after she was pronounced dead, reports say.
Argentinian mother Analia Bouter and her husband had been told that their premature daughter was stillborn when she gave birth in Argentina on 3rd April.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a baby make such a miraculous recovery.
Ms Bouter said that when they visited the morgue 12 hours later they found that their daughter was breathing.
“I fell to my knees. My husband didn’t know what to do. We were just crying and I laughed and cried, cries and laughter,” she said in an interview with TeleNoticas.
After it was confirmed that the baby was alive by a morgue worker, Ms Bouter’s brother rushed the baby to the neonatal intensive care unit, reports BBC News.
The case became public when it was announced that five health professionals had been suspended pending the start of an official investigation into the incident.
Ms Bouter said their little girl is healthy, despite her early arrival after just 26 weeks of gestation, and hasn’t needed oxygen or other support commonly needed by premature babies.
They have named their daughter Luz Milagros meaning “Miracle Light”.
