Newborn Baby Pronounced Dead, Placed in a Hospital Freezer, and Comes to Life 12 Hours Later

Who doesn't love stories like this one?
  • Luz Veron was born weighing 1 pound, 12 ounces.
  • This baby was born on April 3, three months early, and had no vital signs, hospital director Dr. Jose Luis Meirino told CNN.
  • The gynecologist on hand didn't find any signs of life, so he passed the baby to a neonatal doctor who also didn't find vital signs, Meirino said.
  • The doctors observed the baby for a while, and only then, pronounced her dead.
  • The hospital then followed protocol. Two morgue workers then put her body inside a little wooden coffin and placed it in the freezer. "Up to that point, there were still no vital signs," the hospital director said.
  • That night, the baby's mother wanted to see her little girl one more time. Hospital officials allowed the couple to visit the baby in the hospital morgue around 10 p.m., Mrs. Veron said. As many as 12 hours had passed since the baby had been declared dead.
  • "They put the coffin on top of a stretcher and we looked for a little crowbar to open it because it was nailed shut," Veron told a local television station. "It was nailed shut. I put the crowbar in there and started prying. I took a breath and took the lid off."
  • The mother approached the baby's body, touched her hand, and heard a cry, she told CNN.
    She jumped back. "It's my imagination, it's my imagination," she repeated.
  • The baby was alive, and crying.
  • Mrs. Veron's brother-in-law rushed the baby back to the neonatal ward. He clutched her close to his chest for warmth. She felt like an ice-cold bottle against his body, the relative told Veron.
    "I can't explain what happened. Only that God has performed a miracle," Veron said.
  • "Today is the eighth day of my daughter's resurrection," the girl's father, Fabian Veron, told CNN Wednesday.
  • The parents named her Luz Milagros, the Spanish words for "Light" and "Miracles."

That's what happened.

From this point on your worldview will take over.
