he baby – now named Milagros (Miracles) – was declared dead 35 minutes after her mother, Jenny Hurtado, had a Caesarean in Quibdo, Colombia. Hurtado was just 27 weeks pregnant when she was rushed to the San Francisco de Asis hospital on November 13. After performing the procedure medics were unable to find signs of life in the child and declared the tot deceased just 35 minutes later. The baby was taken to the morgue while staff waited for her fisherman father to collect her.
However as the baby was handed over to her father, staff noticed signs of life and heard a soft cry. Once it was clear the child was alive she was rushed onto a plane and flown to the Santa Teresita del Nino Jesus clinic in the Colombian capital Bogota. She remains in intensive care and is receiving round-the-clock treatment for her underdeveloped lungs.
Specialist doctor Javier Zagarra told Semana that the mistaken death could be due to Milagros having a soft heart beat at the time of birth. “In some cases the heart movements are not perceptible even though the newborn is alive, they can declare it dead,” he said.”When they wrap the baby in a sheet, upon receiving warmth, the baby can then revitalise.”
