'Dead' Baby Found Alive At Funeral Wake
Sky News ^ | Saturday August 08, 2009 | Staff

Posted on 08/08/2009 11:10:17 AM PDT by chuck_the_tv_out

A father has described his shock at finding his 'dead' baby had come back to life when he said goodbye at the wake.

Jose Alvarenga's son was born prematurely in Asuncion, Paraguay, weighing just 500 grams (17.6 ounces).

The infant was pronounced dead on Thursday and officials put the tiny body in a box and took it to his parents house four hours later.

Mr Alvarenga said: "I opened it to look at his remains and found that the baby was breathing. I began to cry."

He hurried back to the hospital where his partner was receiving treatment, and nurses put the baby in an incubator.

The infant is understood to be in a stable condition.

Another win for God and the tenacity of life. If this baby has it now, then surely it will still have it when 65.

Obamacare. Coming soon to a hospital near you.

BTW what's with the "partner" business. They could have said his wife or the baby's mom.

I wondered the same thing..

I'm guess they are now referring to all significant others / spouses as "partners" so as to not stigmatize the gay community.

More PC. If they're going to use the term partner for same-sex couples, they have to do it for all.

I've stopped watching HGTV because I'm sick of hearing phrases like "not married to that sofa." I've heard it on some of the cooking shows too - "marry the ingredients," etc. Sheesh, like there are no other words to explain what they want to say. All blatantly geared toward making marriage mean anything other than what it is IMO.

Rather God is Good!

I pray that the hospital is capable of sustaining this tiny baby with the neo-natal care he needs.

Some see miracles, others see incompetents, dangerous ignorance and luck that the baby was not buried alive.

It is “insensitive” to use the words “husband” “wife” or even “boyfriend” or “girlfriend” after a country has declared that one’s gender is immaterial to a “partnership”.

We are pretty sure that the “partner” left at the hospital was female, aren’t we. We are just not allowed to acknowledge that fact, or we may possibly be “offending” someone, or even indulging in a little “hate” speech.

And yet people continue to claim that legalizing single sex “marriage” will have “no effect on the rest of us.”

Now that you mention it, yes.

Come to think of it, "cow" is a little too speciesist. Maybe "non-human animal persons".

[head of paediatric intensive care, Ernesto Weber] said the doctor in charge may not have properly checked the baby.

MAY not have? Yikes! Better get the poor little tot out of that genius' PICU before they inflict any more of their brillant expertise on him.

“Better get the poor little tot out of that genius’ PICU before they inflict any more of their brillant expertise on him.”

The “PICU” reminds me of the story that skier Picabo Street was going to donate the money for an ICU wing that would be called, in her honor, Picabo ICU.

From Wikipedia: ‘Her given name was inspired by the nearby Idaho town of Picabo, (pronounced “Peekaboo”), a Native American word meaning “shining waters”.’

Yeah. . .”partner” is Brit speak to make same-sex, unmarried and married couples stand the same in the publics eye.

No one is married, everyone is a partner. . .and besides, its all so temporary, after all, and partner just reflects this “fact.”

If you identify someone as married, that is bigoted and hurtful to those that can't get married.

Good thing Obummer wasn’t there. He would’ve taken into a utility closet and killed it.
