Baby Declared Dead Found Alive in China Funeral Home

22 November 2013

A funeral home discovered a baby was alive two days after he was pronounced dead at a hospital in eastern China. Authorities revoked the license of the doctor who mistakenly declared the newborn boy dead, the health department in Anhui Province said. The statement it issued on Thursday said funeral home workers found the boy to be alive on Wednesday, two days after he was pronounced dead at a provincial Children’s Hospital. The department said the boy has severe deformities and the hospital treated him until Monday, when his condition deteriorated. Authorities have ruled that the doctor was negligent and that hospital’s newborn division was chaotic. The boy remains in critical condition.—AP
