This is magic! A pregnant Nebraska woman died just a month before she had to deliver her baby. What happened next will restore you belief in things beyond science.Karla Perez, 22, was suffering from brain-bleeding and hence couldn’t survive. To save the baby, a team of 100 doctors decided to keep her body on ventilator for 54 days. She was 22 weeks pregnant when doctors found that she was suffering an irreparable brain bleed.
To keep the baby breathing after her death, Karla’s body was kept on ventilator. As one of the doctors described – “Our team took a giant leap of faith. We were attempting something that not many before us have been able to do.”
Eight weeks later, the wonder baby was delivered via C-section. He has been nick-named the Baby Angel. During his birth, he weighed just 2 pounds and 16 ounces. He was kept in incubator and is being fed through a tube.
How amazing it is to learn that the dead mother’s body supported the whole system and kept that going on. We wish the baby a very healthy and happy life ahead. Kisses!
