Jenny Hurtado was just 27 weeks pregnant, when she delivered her baby girl at 2:45 am at San Francisco de Asis hospital in Quibdo in the Pacific state of Choco.


Just 35 minutes after her baby was delivered by C-section on November 13, she was pronounced dead and transferred to the hospital morgue. Her body was placed inside a box as staff waited for her fisherman father to come for her, The Daily Mail reported.

But as the attendant handed the baby over to her father—more than ten hours later– “they recognized signs of life and heard a soft cry,” Lee Moran reported. “Realizing the infant was still alive, workers rushed her on board a plane to the Santa Teresita del Niño Jesus clinic in the capital Bogota.’

The baby’s name is Milagros –“Miracles—which only seems appropriate. How did the misdiagnosis happen?

Specialist doctor Javier Zagarra told that, “’In some cases the heart movements are not perceptible even though the newborn is alive, they can declare it dead,” adding, “ When they wrap the baby in a sheet, upon receiving warmth, the baby can then revitalize.”

Milagros, accompanied by her aunt Reyes Hinestroza, remains in intensive care, receiving treatment for her underdeveloped lungs.
