Baby found alive after pronounced dead and in the morgue for 12 hours.

Mother of the baby

A 'stillborn' baby was found alive in a draw in a hospital morgue by her distressed mother 12 hours after the girl was declared dead. Analia Bouter wasby  26 weeks pregnant when she gave birth to her fifth child prematurely at a hospital in Resistencia, in Argentina's northern Chaco province. But after medical staff told her that the infant was born with no vital signs her distraught parents went home with a death certificate.

Twelve hours later Analia and her husband decided to go to see their baby's body, which was being kept in a refrigerated drawer at the Perrando hospital morgue Mrs Bouter told Argentina's Clarin newspaper.
"That night, we went to the morgue. We wanted to take a photo of our daughter,but when a worker opened the drawew, we heard a cry and she was alive"

She said: ‘At first the doctors said that she was born dead, then said she had died shortly after birth because she was too small to survive.
‘I don't know who is to blame, and I'm not thinking about it at this moment. The joy of knowing she's alive is covering every other feeling. I'm a Christian, and I believe this was a miracle of God.’
And she said that her daughter is ‘getting stronger by the minute’.

The parents, who were going to call their daughter Luciana Abigail, said she will now be baptised Luz Milagros, which means Light Miracles.
Meanwhile, the Perrando hospital has suspended the medical staff involved in the birth while they conduct an investigation.
The hospital's director Jose Luis Meirino said: ‘At the moment we have no explanation. The baby was attended to by obstetricians, gynecologists and a neonatologist. They all reached the same conclusion, that this girl was stillborn.’
He said that hypothermia may have caused the baby to go into a type of hibernation, causing her vital signs to vanish completely.
Rafael Sabatinelli, health secretary for Argentina's Chaco province, called the case ‘disgraceful’ and promised a full investigation.
He said: ‘Every member of the team that was involved has some responsibility, so they will have to answer for this.’
