MEXICO CITY — Authorities in Mexico say a newborn baby girl declared dead by doctors revived inside her coffin during her wake.
Hidalgo state Attorney General Jose Rodriguez says the parents heard a strange noise coming from the tiny casket. Opening it up, they found her crying and very much alive.
Rodriguez told state public radio Thursday that the doctor who pronounced the girl dead at a hospital in the town of Tulancingo is being investigated for possible negligence.
The baby, who was born prematurely Monday, is in stable condition at a different hospital.

You guys need to be updated and here’s the latest. Head on over to this update at AOL. There’s a picture of the mother holding the “birth certificate” and details of the actual birth. This could be the begining of the end.
When the baby was born, she weighed only 1.3 pounds. Soon after, doctors declared that the baby had died, saying they could no longer detect a pulse.
Just as strange is the fact that such a weak child could survive being declared dead. Once the death certificate had been signed, the baby was taken to an ice-cold mortuary. She was left there for more than four hours before being given back to the family.
“We know that premature babies can’t take even a minute of cold conditions, let alone the temperature of a morgue,” Martinez said. “It’s not normal that she survived.”
