Mother Finds Stillborn Baby Alive In Morgue After 12 Hours

A mom in Argentina experienced the best — and worst — moment of her life in one miraculous day!

Analia Bouter, 29, gave birth to a premature baby girl, Luz Milagros, on April 3 in Resistencia, Argentina, but the baby was declared stillborn. The infant was the fifth child for the mother, but the first girl. The grieving mother wanted to see her baby one last time, so she traveled to a mortuary in Chacho 12 hours later after the death was declared. Analia and the baby’s father Fabian Veron were led to a refrigerated room where Luz was being held in a chilled drawer-like coffin, according to ABC News. Analia was expecting to see her stillborn, but instead saw her baby girl alive and crying!

“I don’t know who is to blame, and I’m not thinking about it at this moment,” Analia told Argentine newspaper Clarin. “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.”

Hypothermia probably caused the baby to go into a type of hibernation, causing her vital signs to vanish completely, the father explains to the newspaper.

The undersecretary for health for Argentina’s Chaco province, Rafael Sabatinelli, tells Chaco Dia Por Dia, a news site, that the office opened an investigation to determine what happened.

“Every member of the team that was involved has some responsibility, so they will have to answer for this,” he says.

What a happy ending! Congratulations!
