I have with my own eyes seen this happen.
A baby came into the ER with a raging 41'c ++ Temp, suffered seizures and was worked on for nearly three hours. Its poor little heart stopped for the
final time, and it was pronounced deceased.
Now, it was taken by the porters to the mortuary, where 1 hour later cries of a baby was heard by a passing porter who went in.
One phone call later, 5 drs, 6 nurses and an anaethatist went running down the corridor to start treatment.
4 weeks of IV therapy and care for accute sepsis it left hospital with mum and dad. No worse for wear either it seemed.
Later it was thought over, and it was concluded that the low temp of the fridge 2'c plunged the baby into such a cooled state that the sepsis causing
pyrexia was lowered to a survivalable rate and the organs just kicked started themselves as the brain was under less pressure from swelling.
