Dead Baby Found Alive in Coffin

In Paraguay, doctors declared a newly born baby dead but the miracle baby boy was found alive when he was taken home for his funeral.

Doctors at a state hospital in Asuncion, Paraguay, told Jose Alvarenga on Friday that his premature baby had been pronounced dead shortly after birth.

A few hours later, the baby’s body was delivered to Alvarenga’s home in a temporary coffin.

Mourning relatives were shocked when the baby began to cry.

According to the Associated Press Alvarenga said,“I opened it to look at his remains and found that the baby was breathing.”

“I began to cry.”

The boy weighs less than a pound and was born 16 weeks pre-maturely. His condition is now stable.

Officials are investigating whether hospital negligence was involved.
