Baby Found Alive After 12 Hours in Morgue

Amazing story here from Argentina.

After prematurely giving birth, the parents of a newborn baby, deemed stillborn, found the baby still breathing in the morgue after twelve hours. Shocked, I’m sure, to say the least.

The infant was taken directly to the morgue, after apparently being declared dead. When the parents went to the morgue to say good-bye, they opened the casket (already nailed shut), and uncovered the baby’s face. The baby let out a cry. Can you imagine?

The five medical professionals involved have been suspended pending an official investigation. That seems like a good start. Do they have medical malpractice lawsuits in Argentina?
