This baby was born dead but what doctors do next is surely a miracle!
The term Miracle baby does exist in every sense of the word. Around the world, thousands of babies are born dead but not all of them remain that way. Through the daunting and determined attitude of doctors and medical staff, several babies return to life in what can be termed as miracles. It is such moments that we must be thankful for in experiencing life.
In this video shown at the end of this article, you may be devastated at seeing how a baby is born dead but is brought back to life. What us even more spectacular and heart-warming of this situation is this miraculous incident occurred amidst the devastation and destruction of a country none other than SYRIA.
1 Born dead but doctors don’t lose hope
Yes!! In the midst of the destruction of Aleppo, Doctors saved the life of one Syrian baby born dead even as 45 people were killed on that fateful day in July. Amidst a war triggered by manly greed, humanity seems to have failed as children become the harmless victims of senseless war. A pregnant woman called Mayissa was severely wounded on that fateful day when a bomb attack broke her right arm and leg. Shrapnel lodged in her belly made doctors fear that her baby was now dead. Doctors extracted the baby through a c-section but it was not breathing.
2 May God bless you, Cry baby Cry
The video filmed at Waad al Kataab depicts the anxiety of doctors as they struggle to resuscitate the dead baby. There was no heartbeat and you can hear doctors discussing as they attempt to clear his air passage. The doctors then injected a substance into the umbilical cord and hang the baby upside down all the time rubbing its back vigorously.
Ultimately to their sheer joy they hear the baby cry. Doctors are so moved and overwhelmed that they make comments like “May God bless you” and “Cry Cry”. It is the words of the narrator journalist Matt Frei that sums up hope and despair in a single sentence. “More powerful for a brief moment than Aleppo’s daily cry of death,”
3 Humanity celebrates life only to take it in the end
This incredible video of the Syrian baby born dead came exactly two days after the world watched in horror and sympathy at the image of a little five year old boy sitting dazed and strewn with debris in the back of an ambulance. He had just been rescued after an airstrike in Aleppo.
Even as humanity struggles to come to terms with the murder of innocents, it is humanity who is yet to understand that in celebrating life, it also is the harbinger of death.
