A baby that was born prematurely in Argentina was found alive by the mother in a morgue approximately 12 hours after the officials had declared the baby dead. Analia Bouguet, the mother of the baby said that the hospital still has issued her a death certificate for the infant rather than a birth certificate.
The newborn has been named Luz Milagros, or “Miracle Light” which seems to be a pretty good name for what the baby went through. She is still listed as being in critical condition but is said to be improving. Two hours after being issue a death certificate, Bouguet and her husband visited the morgue because they wanted to see their child one more time.
“The baby was there and they put the little casket on a stretcher. We looked for a bar to pry it open,” the baby’s father, Fabian Veron, said in a press conference. “My wife looked and uncovered it slowly. She saw the little hand and then uncovered the face. That’s when it let the first little cry out.”
“That night, we went to the morgue. We wanted to take a photo of our daughter,” Bouguet told Argentina’s Clarin newspaper. “But when a worker opened the drawer, we heard a cry and she was alive.”
