Buenos Aires - A mother in Argentina says she fell to her knees in shock after finding her baby alive in a coffin in the morgue 12 hours after the girl was declared dead.

The newborn girl has been named "Luz Milagros," or "Miracle Light", and was in critical but improving condition on Wednesday in the same hospital where the staff pronounced her stillborn on April 3.

The case became public on Tuesday when the deputy provincial health minister announced that five medical professionals involved have been suspended pending an official investigation.

Analia Bouguet told TeleNoticias in an interview on Tuesday night that she still just has a death certificate, not a birth certificate. A medical malpractice suit is planned.

    Why suspend? They should fire the lot and revoke their licenses to practice. They should not be doctors.......
