Baby pronounced dead ‘comes back to life’ in Brazilian chapel


NY Post: A Brazilian girl pronounced dead at birth “came back to life” three hours later as she lay on a hospital chapel’s altar, it’s been claimed. The lifeless body of tiny Yasmin Gomes was just minutes away from being  taken to the morgue when she kicked out one of her legs and opened her eyes. Friends and family are dubbing her apparent “resurrection” at the Lincoln  Graca hospital in Londrina as a “miracle.”

Jornal de Noticias reports that Yasmin was born to mom Jenifer da Silva  Gomes, 22, and dad Cleverson Carlos Gomes, 26, on Tuesday morning. But she stopped breathing almost immediately. Doctors tried to revive her  several times to no avail. They declared her dead at 11 a.m. and issued a death certificate.

Nurse Ana Claudia Oliveira, who assisted with the birth, asked for the  baby’s body to be laid in the hospital chapel instead of being sent to the morgue so that she could dress her properly. “I just couldn’t face the thought of her being sent down to the morgue,” she  told Globo G1.

But three hours later, at 2 p.m., Yasmin’s grandmother Elza Silva arrived  with mortician Rosilis Ferro to pick up the body. It was then that the newborn kicked out a leg and opened her eyes. “At first I couldn’t believe it; we couldn’t accept that it could happen,”  said Silva.

“Then we saw she was breathing. We hugged each other and started to shout,  ‘She’s alive. She’s alive.’ It was a miracle.” Yasmin was taken to the intensive care unit at nearby Sagrada Familia  children’s hospital and is reported to be in a stable condition.

Dr. Aurelio Filipak, who fought for more than an hour to save Yasmin’s life  after she was born, said he was completely perplexed by the incident. “In 20 years of medicine, I have never witnessed anything like this,” he  revealed.

What an incredible story – of miracles and the power of God!

The giving of life is God’s prerogative. Even if a sperm fertilizes an egg in the mothers’ womb, it won’t necessarily live. Every time a fertilized egg is given the impulse to live it is a miracle. Give God the glory, the Lord and Giver of LIfe…………………………….we bow down and worship you Lord God, in spirit and in truth. You are worthy of all the glory, the honor and the praise.
