Baby nearly buried alive finally passes away

Angel Salvador was a premature baby who was declared dead and prepared for burial. Hours later, at a funeral home in Paraguay, his father Jose Alvarenga opened the temporary cardboard casket to say goodbye; he found the baby alive and breathing. The baby was taken to the same hospital in Asuncion that declared him dead, where he was reportedly in stable condition. Days later, on August 10, 2009, baby Angel Salvador was confirmed to have died.

This story is so sad. The baby was a full 16 weeks early. The video from the BBC shows this carboard box the baby was placed in as a 'makeshift' casket. Its just heart breaking. The baby finally passed away days after the incident.
