Newborn baby found alive in morgue 12 hours after being declared dead


source- yahoo news

A newborn in Argentina was found very much alive in a morgue by her mother 12 hours after hospital staff had declared the baby dead.
The mother, Analia Bouguet, tells TeleNoticias TV that the hospital still has issued her only a death certificate for the infant rather than a birth certificate. Bouguet said she is planning to pursue amedical malpractice suit.
The Daily Mail reports that the baby was Bouguet's fifth and was born prematurely.
Two hours after being issue a death certificate, Bouguet and her husband visited the morgue because they wanted to see their child one more time.
"The baby was there and they put the little casket on a stretcher. We looked for a bar to pry it open," the baby's father, Fabian Veron, said in a press conference. "My wife looked and uncovered it slowly. She saw the little hand and then uncovered the face. That's when it let the first little cry out."
"That night, we went to the morgue. We wanted to take a photo of our daughter," Bouguet told Argentina's Clarin newspaper. "But when a worker opened the drawer, we heard a cry and she was alive."
The newborn has been named Luz Milagros, or "Miracle Light." She is still listed as being in critical condition but is said to be improving. The deputy provincial health minister announced that five medical professionals involved in the case have been suspended, pending further investigation.
"At the moment we have no explanation," hospital director Jose Luis Meirino told the paper. "The baby was attended to by obstetricians, gynecologists and a neonatologist. They all reached the same conclusion, that this girl was stillborn."
Argentina is no stranger to "miracle baby" stories. Last December, a healthy set of dicephalic conjoined twins, aka a baby born with two heads, made international headlines.

MEDIA COUNCIL OF TANZANIA AWARDS

Receiving the award for the best television journalist 2011, children category


The MCT awards 2011 were held on 30th March 2012 at Diamond Jubilee hall in Dar es salaam, Tanzania, the President of United Republic of Tanzania Dr Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete was the guest of honour. The ceremony was braced with local entertainment and after a heavy dinner the awards were announced. You could feel the excitement and the joy in the room with alot of young journalists eager to win their first award to seal the long year of hard work and toil. 
When time came and my name was announced as the winner for the documentary that I did on street children living in Ubungo bus terminal all I thought was my family watching me and just hoping some of the children living and working in the streets are peeping through a window to have a glimpse of the award just for them to know that as much as glamorous the award is but it is the platform were our leaders will hear of their struggle. I will always play my duty to inform the society till one day I walk in the streets and all I can see are children in school uniforms smiling as they pass me. I won the award but I should say we won the award. The fight is not over media is a powerful tool and I will never stop using it for the betterment of our Tanzanian, African and the whole wide world children.
You can watch the short version of the documentary on the documentary page on this blog.  Asante
