A baby has survived after being declared dead by hospital staff shortly after birth. The child was buried by family members, but she was found to be alive after her body was dug up.
In Bizarre incident happened in Two the Sub District Hospital in Banihal, India, after the newborn was found to be alive despite being pronounced stillborn just a few hours prior.
Two hours after being pronounced dead, family members of the baby buried her in a nearby graveyard in the village of Hollan.
However, while the funeral for the baby was still underway, locals staged an impromptu protest about the burial site. They said the newborn should be buried at an ancestral burial site instead.
So, the family put the funeral ceremony on hold to dig up their seemingly deceased baby an hour later.
The family were shocked to find their newborn “alive and crying” when they dug her body out.
Two members of the hospital staff’s gynaecology department were subsequently suspended while authorities investigate.
