An 16 month old baby who had drowned in a backyard pool and declared brain dead and without a pulse, suddenly shocked doctors and family when he came back to life. This all happened while family was deliberating on whether or not to donate his organs. Medical experts believed him to be dead and today, he suffers no side effects from being dead.
The baby was cold, blue and foaming at the mouth and nose, Ross said.
Doctors estimate Michael drowned 30 minutes before he arrived at the hospital. Michael arrived at the hospital in complete cardiopulmonary arrest, authorities said.
At the hospital, Avila was hysterical at the sight of her baby on life support. She was told the first 72 hours were critical and there was no guarantee Michael would make it.
His pulse finally returned after one hour and 10 minutes of using an oxygen bag to inflate his lungs and chest compressions to circulate his blood.
