BABY BORN TO CLINICALLY DEAD MOTHER
MADRID, JAN 2 (ZENIT).- Milagros' dream has come true. The baby she carried in her womb, when she suffered a general blood infection that affected several of her organs, was born last Friday. The mother, who knew she was dying, asked her doctors to do everything possible so that the baby would survive.
And so they did. In order to accomplish this feat, they had to keep Milagros artificially alive for a month and a half. She was 34. The baby, a 7-month old boy, weighed 2 lbs. 13 oz. at birth; yesterday his state of health was described as good, although he had slight breathing difficulty and symptoms of anemia. His mother was buried yesterday in Luanco, Asturias. Two of the mother's five brothers have expressed the desire to adopt the baby. ZE00010208
