After Being Declared Dead, Baby Found to Be Alive

From CNN:

(CNN) — She was a tiny thing: 1 pound 12 ounces, cold as a frozen bottle and left for dead. But she would survive.

One-week-old Luz Milagros Veron is Argentina’s miracle baby. Pronounced dead after her premature birth, the baby withstood more than 10 hours in a morgue refrigerator before being found alive.

“Today is the eighth day of my daughter’s resurrection,” the girl’s father, Fabian Veron, told CNN Wednesday.

Doctors at the Perrando Hospital in northeast Argentina can’t explain it, and every, doctor, nurse and morgue worker who dealt with the baby has been suspended as an investigation gets underway, officials said.

Luz Milagros remains in stable condition but she’s in intensive care, a health official said.
