Miracle baby presumed dead comes back to life in morgue

A miracle baby, who was presumed dead, came back to life in a morgue in General Santos City, Philippines, fifteen hours after he died.


The mother, Catherine Arcala, brought her child to the morgue from a private hospital thinking that baby Aldrin already passed away due to a critical illness, according to a video report aired Monday, August 4, on ABS-CBN's morning program Umagang Kay Ganda.

It was a law enforcer who discovered that the baby is alive. In an interview, Police Officer III (PO3) Jepson Corsit, said he heard a baby crying inside the morgue. He rushed inside and removed the piece of cloth wrapped around the infant's body so the baby can breathe.

The policeman brought the baby to a public hospital. She was successfully revived and is currently recovering.

Meanwhile, the baby's grandfather, Ernesto Leoberas, admitted during an interview that the family was forced to have his grandchild discharged as their hospital bill already reached P100,000 since July 20.

According to the doctor, who declined to face the camera, the baby had no heartbeat upon arrival. However, the physician claimed that he did not pronounce the baby dead.

On the other hand, the mother was thankful that her child was not immediately embalmed.

This is the second time in less than a month that a baby rose from the dead.

Last month, a 3-year-old baby who was supposed to be buried woke up inside her coffin in the middle of the funeral rites at a church in the town of Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur.

According to a relative, the toddler allegedly moved so they took her off the coffin and brought her to the hospital for a medical check-up. A health official later confirmed that the baby girl was already dead.
