5. “Dead” Chinese baby awakes before being cremated
A Chinese baby boy who was declared dead a day before and had spent the night in the morgue miraculously awakes before his cremation. The preemie baby, born in January, spent 23 days in an incubator before his dad took him home to celebrate the Lunar New Year. His condition worsened thereafter, and was declared dead on February 4; his heart stopped beating, said the doctor. What could have “saved” him was the fact that the baby’s dad wrapped him in two layers of clothing and a thick bag before his body was sent to the morgue.
