Small miracle: Baby Declared Dead Comes to Life After Being Placed on Chapel Altar.

After unsuccesful attempts to bring the child back, Doctor Aurelia Filipak said what happened next was unlike anything he has seen in his 20 years of medicine.

Elza Silva, grandmother of Yasmin, was on her way to the chapel in order to transfer her presumably dead granddaughter to the morgue when, in her eyes, a miracle took place. Yasmin, who was pronounced dead by doctors just three hours before, opened her eyes and began kicking.
