Dead baby wakes up crying after two days

  • A baby pronounced dead woke up after two days in eastern China. He was born with severe deformities last month and his parents decided to end his medical treatment. 

    The child was taken to a funeral parlor after being declared dead but the staff heard him cry before his cremation. 

    The baby was taken to the hospital in critical condition and given transfusion"to maintain his life for humanitarian reasons," a hospital staffer said. 

    A member of the investigating team mentioned that the baby's "extremely feeble heartbeat and breath would only have been detected by medical equipment." However, the doctor who pronounced him dead still lost his license for being negligent.
