A newborn in Argentina declared dead shortly after her birth was reportedly discovered 12 hours later alive and well in her coffin.
When six-months pregnant Analia Bouter gave birth at a hospital in Resistencia, staff told her the baby was stillborn and showed no signs of life, according to local media reports.
Twelve hours later, Bouter and her husband took a trip the morgue to visit their dead daughter.
“That night I went with my husband to where the coffin was and he opened it up,” she told reporters. “Immediately I heard her cry.”
The baby girl was alive, breathing and reported to be in good health. Authorities have launched an investigation into the hospital mishap.
“Every member of the team that was involved has some responsibility, so they will have to answer for this,” said Rafael Sabatinelli, the undersecretary for health in the Chaco province.
The incident, which happened last week, has just now been made public.
The girl’s parents have reportedly named her Luz Milagros, which means “miracles” .
