MODS: Not sure if it belongs here, feel free to move it around!


The baby, weighing only 600 grams at birth, spent at least five hours inside one of the hospital's refrigerated storage units, before her parents, who had taken her to be buried, began noticing some movement.

This shows how much Doctors really know. You can never be too sure about everything they say.

Now a real question, if the baby was pronounced dead and was being cooled down for his parents to get him for his burial.

Maybe this baby will be gifted in so many ways when he grows up.

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.

Actually sadly the baby died after all. It is a real scandal hear - stillborn's death should be spotted by neonatologist since pulse is difficult to hear. It was done by gynecologist. Then after baby really died (not what was claimed death for the first time) hospital did not try to apologies for their mistake/inadequate treatment in the first time. It does not matter if they could save the baby or not, but the whole issue was not professionally dealt with.
Now there is a lot of pressure on doctors here - they work extremely long shifts with huge overload, and it is not the first time that someone is declared dead but lives after that. However the issue is highly sensitive and it should be dealt professionally.
