    A stillborn Israeli baby who was pronounced dead by doctors "came back to life" on Monday after spending hours in a hospital refrigerator.
    The baby, weighing only 600 grams at birth, spent at least five hours inside one of the hospital's refrigerated storage units, before her parents, who had taken her to be buried, began noticing some movement.
    "We unwrapped her and felt she was moving. We didn't believe it at first. Then she began holding my mother's hand, and then we saw her open her mouth," said 26-year-old Faiza Magdoub, the baby's mother.

    Awesome but babies are not human until they have gone full term and been born!

    Absolutely amazing!! Unfortunately, the baby is most probably too young to save but if it fought this hard so far, and God's hand is in it, this little one will continue to be a miracle!

    Wow! I didn't realize it was the same weight as my girlfriend's son. He's had a long fight but he's now 14 months old and doing GREAT.

    Atleast they gave the baby a chance to make it. I wonder how much that time in the refrigerator might have helped or harmed.
