Dead baby laid on chapel altar comes back to life

A baby girl pronounced dead after birth was sent to the hospital Chapel, where what could be called a miracle happened: she "came back to life" three hours later, the witnesses said in The Sun article.

A nurse who "couldn't face sending her to the morgue" sent the body of baby Yasmin Gome to the altar in the chapel, according to The Sun.

But after three hours when the girl's grandmother and a mortician came to pick up the body, they couldn't believe that they really saw that the baby suddenly kicked a leg and then opened her eyes.

"At first, I couldn't believe it. We couldn't accept that it could happen. "The grandmother Elza Silva said in The Sun's report, "then we saw that she was breathing. We hugged each other and started to shout, 'She's alive, and she's alive.' It was a miracle."

According to the hospital records, the baby girl was born alive on Tuesday morning at Lincoln Graca hospital, Brazil, The Sun said. But moments later she stopped breathing. The mother Jenifer da Silva Gomes said doctors had tried their best to save the newborn, but at last they told her their failure.

"My world crashed down right then. It was the most desperate moment when all my dreams were snatched away," she recalled, The Sun reported.

But then three hours later, the good news gave great comfort to the mom. "There is no explaining miracles. They happen as God wants," she said in The Sun's report, "if it was his will that our daughter had died, we would have accepted it, but he brought her back, so there must be a higher purpose in all this."

The little girl's body even became blue at that time, the nurse who took her to the Chapel. However three hours later, she was alive, which made doctors surprised.

"In 20 years of medicine, I have never witnessed anything like this," a doctor said in The Sun.
