Pronounced dead, baby found alive in morgue

She was a tiny thing: 1 pound 12 ounces, cold as a frozen bottle and left for dead. But she would survive.

One-week-old Luz Milagros Veron is Argentina's miracle baby.

Pronounced dead after her premature birth, the baby withstood more than 10 hours in a morgue refrigerator before being found alive.

"Today is the eighth day of my daughter's resurrection," the girl's father, Fabian Veron, told CNN Wednesday.

Doctors at the Perrando Hospital in northeast Argentina can't explain it.

Every, doctor, nurse and morgue worker who dealt with the baby has been suspended as an investigation gets underway, officials said.

Luz Milagros remains in stable condition but she's in intensive care, a health official said.

    You know what? I can't even begin to try and explain this one. In fact, the only thing going through my mind, is "What's going to happen to the baby? Is it going to live a normal life? Or have issues? What would I do in that situation? etc". I don't think it was a miracle from God, but it truly is an amazing occurance. Congratz :)

    If you are fat you eat too much in relation to how much you exeicrse. As someone who has weighed over 350LBS, my doctor told me the same thyroid problem BS. Once I stopped eating junk and began exercising, the weight came off ( 160lbs )

    Thanks for expressing your ideas in this article. The other matter is that any time a problem develops with a laptop motherboard, individuals should not have some risk connected with repairing that themselves because if it is not done properly it can lead to irreparable damage to the whole laptop. It will always be safe to approach any dealer of that laptop for your repair of the motherboard. They've technicians with an skills in dealing with pc motherboard problems and can carry out the right analysis and conduct repairs.

    Was reading article on baby found alive in morgue I feel it's a very joyous story , and makes me really think about how our bodies react to different climate changes. If the baby was in a sealed or "nailed coffin" wouldn't the oxygen have run out after a few hours assuming the box was infant size ? Is that were the chilled temp. came into play? Interesting however,very happy for outcome of baby
