Baby declared dead wakes up before being cremated
A baby, who was declared dead, was almost cremated alive in China
The parents had agreed to end his treatment at Anhui Provincial Children's Hospital and a death certificate was also issued before the baby was sent to undertakers, the South China Morning Post reported.
The child, who was less than a month old, was sent back to the hospital when they heard him crying at the funeral home.
A hospital worker said that because the baby still had life signs, they continued to give him transfusion to maintain his life for humanitarian reasons.
Following the incident, a doctor was suspended, a nursing worker was fired and an investigation was launched.
