‘Stillborn’ Baby Found Alive in Morgue After 12 Hours

A newborn in Argentina was found very much alive in a morgue by her mother 12 hours after hospital staff had declared the baby dead.

The mother, Analia Bouguet, tells TeleNoticias TV that the hospital still has issued her only a death certificate for the infant rather than a birth certificate. Bouguet said she is planning to pursue a medical malpractice suit. The Daily Mail reports that the baby was Bouguet’s fifth and was born prematurely. Two hours after being issue a death certificate, Bouguet and her husband visited the morgue because they wanted to see their child one more time.

“The baby was there and they put the little casket on a stretcher. We looked for a bar to pry it open,” the baby’s father, Fabian Veron, said in a press conference. “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.”


“That night, we went to the morgue. We wanted to take a photo of our daughter,” Bouguet told Argentina’s Clarin newspaper. “But when a worker opened the drawer, we heard a cry and she was alive.”

The newborn has been named Luz Milagros, or “Miracle Light.” She is still listed as being in critical condition but is said to be improving. The deputy provincial health minister announced that five medical professionals involved in the case have been suspended, pending further investigation.

“At the moment we have no explanation,” hospital director Jose Luis Meirino told the paper. “The baby was attended to by obstetricians, gynecologists and a neonatologist. They all reached the same conclusion, that this girl was stillborn.”
