Newborn Declared Dead: Found ALIVE in Morgue!

Luz Milagros, very much alive.

Down in Argentina, they are calling her a miracle baby.

In fact, her parents have even named her Luz Milagros, or “Miracle Light”. And it’s fairly impossible to argue with their choice.

Twelve hours after the young infant girl was born prematurely and declared dead by doctors, nurses and other officials her mother and father, Analia Bouguet and Fabian Veron, ventured down into the hospital morgue to lay their eyes and hands upon their fifth child one last time.

That’s where the miracle part comes in.

According to a report on Yahoo! ,Veron spoke at a press conference once this unstoppable story broke.

“The baby was there and they put the little casket on a stretcher. We looked for a bar to pry it open,” he recounted. “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.”

There are many emotions listed in the dictionar, a galaxy of feeling and reaction we can pin to nearly any sort of situation we encounter on our journey through this life. But, I will be damned if I can find the words to describe what these two mourning parents must have felt the other day when all of this went down.

What do you feel half a day after you have lost a baby, after you have been wrestling with grief and burden and the deepest  kinds of saddness, only to suddenly be thrust back into the land of hope?

Was it elation? Or panic? Were they overjoyed right away or did they feel touched by the supernatural?

Did it seem like a ghostly encounter in that instant…or were they pummeled by an avalanche of happiness?

As of this morning, little Luz Milagros is still being listed in critical condition, but according to the Yahoo! report, she is also improving at a satisfactory rate.  Jose Luis Meirino, the hospital director where the baby was delivered told Argentina’s Clarin  newspaper, “The baby was attended to by obstetricians, gynecologists and a neonatologist. They all reached the same conclusion, that this girl was stillborn.”

Luz Milagros’ mother has indicated that she will pursue a medical malpractice suit.
