A tiny toddler named Milagros which means “Miracle” was prematurely born in Quibdo, Colombia.
The mom Jenny Hurtado gave birth via C-section way ahead of time after just 27 weeks of pregnancy and the doctors proclaimed her newborn baby daughter deceased in the early hours of Wednesday last week. While everyone was waiting for the father who was a fisherman to show up at the hospital they took the remains of the deceased baby to the morgue and put it inside a box.
It wasn’t until the father showed up that the doctors heard a soft cry from inside the box. To everyone’s amazement the prematurely born baby was actually alive and kicking. They immediately rushed it to the capital Bogota and the toddler is now gathering her strength in the intensive care unit.
The doctors’ explanation about this strange occurrence is that the heartbeat of a prematurely born baby is often too weak to be perceived. Soon after the baby is wrapped in a sheet and receives warmth it can come back to life.
