"Dead" Baby Found Alive

A newborn boy declared dead by doctors in Paraguay was found to be alive hours later after he was taken home for his funeral.
Doctors at a state hospital in Asuncion, Paraguay, told Jose Alvarenga on Friday that his premature baby had been pronounced dead shortly after birth, the Telegraph reported.

The hospital delivered the baby's body in a temporary coffin to Alvarenga's home a few hours later. Mourning relatives were shocked when they heard the baby cry, The Associated Press reported.

"I opened [the coffin] to look at his remains and found that the baby was breathing," Alvarenga said. "I began to cry."
The baby is now listed in stable condition. Officials are investigating to determine whether there was any negligence involved. The AP said that doctors also had initially told Alvarenga that the baby was a girl.

"This is a very unusual case," said Ernesto Weber, head of pediatric intensive care at the hospital, according to told the Agence France-Presse. Aida Notario, a doctor at the hospital's birthing center, said the baby's pulse was so low it was undetectable. See Chick's WHO KILLED CLARICE?
