She must be a miracle. How else does one explain a stillborn baby coming to life in her tiny coffin after spending 12 hours in a refrigerated room?
YEN.com.gh loves a happy ending, and this story, even though it started in tragedy, ends with a miracle unlike any other.
This is the story of baby Luz Milagros, a stillborn baby who had been pronounced clinically dead at birth.
Yet, somehow, little Luz Milagros ended up alive in her mother's arms 12 hours later.
Her stillborn baby was put in a tiny little coffin only 15 minutes after doctors had declared her dead.
For the Argentine mother, Analia Bouter and her husband, Fabian Veron the news was devastating. Worse still, they weren't allow to see the baby's body.
Their little girl, who had been born three months prematurely, was taken away and put in a refrigerated room.
"The doctor always treated the baby as if she were dead ... 15 minutes after my daughter was born, she was already placed in a closed coffin."
Analia could not understand why she had not been allowed to see her baby's body. Why were hospital staff so quick to get her to the refrigeration room?
Husband Fabian had already begun the process of applying for a death certificate when he wanted to see the child's little body.
Even after he had insisted he was told to wait as it was not possible at the time. The drawer had already been shut, he was told.
Were the heartbroken parents not even allowed to say goodbye to the baby that they had never been able to hold or to sing a lullaby to?
Finally, 12 hours after Aniali had given birth to her stillborn baby, the family was allowed to see the body and to pay their respects.
At first, standing next to the tiniest coffin, Analia thought that she had hallucinated. But no, she did not. The tiny infant had moved.
And soon, she made a whimpering noise, as her mother described it, it was "as if she was waking up from a nap."
How she could have survived 12 hours in a refrigerated room is beyond explanation, and beyond belief. She was like a bottle of ice water, her mother said.
The tiny infant was rushed to the emergency room for treatment. Her condition was said to be critical, but stable.
Her parents named her Luz Milagros, which translates to 'Light Miracle,' and she certainly is a miracle child.
How much longer she would have survived in that cold environment had her parents not insisted on seeing her cannot be known.
She had already survived hours longer than what is humanly possible for a baby her size. It cannot be described as anything other than simply miraculous.
