What can you tell about this: A stillborn baby was put on a refrigerator to be buried afterwards. When the parents went to take the dead child, it moved. They discovered later that the baby was still alive. Doctors say that even a very healthy baby won't survive the temperature of the cooler. Some believe it as a miracle. http://www.reuters.com/article/oddlyEnoughNews/idUSLI23405020080823?feedType=RSS&feedName=oddlyEnoughNews

That is absolutely a miracle indeed! I hope that she pulls through and doesn't die. I don't know how people can read something like that and not believe in God. Only a powerful God could allow such a miracle.

That is amazing, and quite scary as well. How many times has something like this happened, and went unnoticed?

That was horrible! Why would parents put a stillborn baby in a refrigerator? But, it's good to know that the baby is alive. Thank God.

Wow, that is one baby god protected and that baby fought to survive. I do hope that it lives to be a healthy child a miracle child it is for sure. I read that the cold probably slowed the baby heart down to help it survive. I hope they do what they can for this baby.

Hello wrangel. So it is lucky of the baby to be still alive after five hours in refrigerator. I hope that the baby will be stronger ever since. Bless the baby for its great life power to be alive.

It's a miracle. The baby was just sleeping for five hours. The change of temperature outside the refrigerator contributed so much that moved the heart from the coldness sphere of the baby'body.

This baby would not have been stillborn but rather someone made a huge mistake when they made that diagnosis. The fact that this baby was born so early in the pregnancy and does not weigh a lot does mean that it has a huge hurdle to jump over if it is survive. The fact that the refrigerator/cooler has such a low temperature would have helped keep the baby alive as it would have slowed down the internal organs. The same thing can happen with people who are lost in freezing conditions and not found for a day or two. Yes I do believe it is a miracle that this baby survived when you look at how early it was born and how small it was at birth. However there have been babies born with a smaller birth weight and they have survived, although often the medical fraternity believed it would not happen. I cannot recall ever reading anywhere that a baby born at 23 weeks gestation has survived but as one miracle has happened, maybe another will. This baby, it if survives, will spend some months in hospital. It's internal organs will not have developed properly at this time and no doubt it will need to be on oxygen to allow its lungs to develop properly. I forsee a long worrying time ahead for the parents of this baby but I am certain that they will be happy to go through it, if there is a chance their baby can survive after such a rocky start to life.

I know there have been cases of children who were close to freezing for some time surviving. I think the cold just cools them down so much that their bodies go into suspended animation. But I'll bet it is a miracle to it's parents. Blessings

That was nothing but a miracle. I am glad that the baby is doing okay.

After reading this I would say the baby is a miracle to be alive. Being born that early and having no treatment what so ever for five hours is amazing. It just goes to prove that God is alive and still works mysteriously.

That is amazing, although, I am now surprised, because as it was said in the article, her metabolism could have slowed and kept her alive. I hope she lives a lot longer.

That sounds like very strange news indeed. Kind of scary if you think about it.

I also believe that it is a miracle. People will attempt to come up with as many explanations as possible, but there is actually only one. God is truly good.
