Miracle baby girl, Yasmin Gomes, pronounced dead, ‘comes back to life’ at hospital’s church altar 3 hours later

A baby girl pronounced dead at birth “came back to life” three hours later on the altar of a hospital chapel, it was reported today.

The body of Yasmin Gomes had been placed in a box and left in the chapel at the hospital in Londrina, south Brazil, by a nurse who “couldn’t face sending her to the morgue”, according to reports.

Yasmin’s father Cleverson Carlos Gomes, age 26, said he received the news where he was waiting in the hospital’s corridor and went straight to the chapel.

“I saw my daughter’s pale, lifeless body. I couldn’t stay there. I ran out of the chapel in tears.”

The newborn’s grieving grandmother arrived with a mortician to pick up her body for burial they were stunned when the baby suddenly kicked one of her legs, then opened her eyes.

“It was an incredibly emotional moment. I began to shake and I couldn’t speak, I was overwhelmed with happiness. I called a nurse who at first didn’t believe it, she told us they were just spasms. But then the baby opened her eyes.”

The mother was still being comforted when a nurse burst into the room and shouted: “Your daughter’s alive.”

The baby was rushed to an intensive care unit at the nearby Sagrada Familia children’s hospital, where her condition is described as stable.

Doctor Aurelio Filipak, who battled to save Yasmin and signed her death certificate, said: “People can make their own conclusions, but only those who were there know what really happened. In 20 years of medicine, I have never witnessed anything like this.”


Yasmin’s family said they plan to change her name to include Victoria – ‘victory’ in Portuguese – and said they believed her ‘ressurection’ was a miracle.
