Grieving father finds 'dead' baby son ALIVE in coffin
Premature: Doctors said the baby boy's heartbeat was undetectable A premature baby declared dead by doctors was found to be alive hours later when he was taken home for a funeral wake.
The baby's father, Jose Alvarenga, was told by doctors that his son had died shortly after birth. Staff from the state-run hospital in Asuncion, the Paraguayan capital, delivered the infant's body to Mr Alvarenga's home fours hours later.
Shortly afterwards, the grieving father opened the baby's coffin to bid an emotional farewell to his son. "I opened it to look at his remains and found that the baby was breathing," Mr Alvarenga said. "I began to cry." He rushed back to the hospital with his unnamed baby in his arms and nurses placed the infant in an oxygen chamber.
He is now reported to be in a stable condition. "This is a very unusual case," said Ernesto Weber, head of paediatric intensive care at the hospital. He acknowledged that the doctor handling the case did not properly check the infant's vital signs, and said an investigation would be carried out.

Ah, a preview of the "level of care" we can expect should obamacare pass...
I think this says a good deal more about the state of stat-run medicine in Paraguay than anything else.

Welcome to the future of “healthcare” in your town.
I’ve heard of rushed medicos but this takes the cake.
I hate when that happens.
Well stop opening that thing. What are you, some kind of nut?
Me coming off the chain would be the least of their worries.
i have a feeling that’s what bammycare doctors would say! HAHAHA.
He’s lucky they had not embalmed him.
Or.. be sure not to get embalmed
that might be deadly for sure..
George Tiller would be deeply saddened.
“He acknowledged that the doctor handling the case did not properly check the infant’s vital signs”
“I would absolutely lose it...absolutely freaking lose it. “
But with Obamacare, you would have absolutely no right to sue.
Horrible! That baby could have been buried alive! Thank God the father found the little boy alive. I hope he makes it.
This is an example of Soylent Green health care. Obama’s vision for America.
That is freaky. I would have lost it myself.
A very dear Chinese friend of mine was a doctor for many years in China. She was very high up in the field of medical research working at various hospitals and universities. One night in her lab she opened a box that contained the remains of a baby for medical research on the heart. The baby was blue and not breathing but had a very feint heartbeat. She called for help to resuscitate the baby. The head of the facility instructed her to kill the baby and get on with her research. She couldn’t do it. So he did it for her. She tried secretly for months to notify the parents about the baby’s fate but was never able to do so. She still has nightmares about that baby.
In case you’re wondering, she is now an American citizen working as a software developer in medical research. She could never go back to working on real hearts but she developed her research software in memory of “Baby Blue.”
You are going to absolutely freaking lose it when ObamaCare becomes the law of the land. Make sure you bring family members with you if you are admitted to a hospital to tell the medical staff not to euthanize you.
Do all you can now to prevent it!! Call!! Write!! E-Mail!! Whatever!! Just do something other than wait for it to happen. It can be prevented!!
You see a UK source and think it’s happened in London or Manchester and almost invariably it’s some third-world backwater.
