State media: Argentine 'miracle' baby in 'very serious' condition

A premature baby who survived hours in a morgue refrigerator in Argentina was in "very serious" condition after doctors detected an infection, state media reported.

The infection could compromise Luz Milagros Veron's neurological system and kidney function, the Telam news agency reported Thursday.

The nine-day-old baby was being treated with antibiotics, said Diana Vesco, chief of neonatology at the Perrando Hospital in northeast Argentina, according to the state news agency.

The baby's survival grabbed global headlines and prompted her parents to give her a new name: Luz Milagros, the Spanish words for light and miracles.

Pronounced dead after her premature birth on April 3, she withstood more than 10 hours in a coffin inside a morgue refrigerator before being found alive.

    Luz Milagro is a tough little baby! If she gets proper medical care she may pull thru from the infection, too! The question is How this poor child was pronounced dead & ended up in the morgue in the 1st place!? If she dies now, it will be due to that Unbelievable sc.rew up!!
