Chinese Newborn Buried, Believed Stillborn, Survives Ordeal

By    |   Monday, 08 Dec 2014 06:11 PM

A Chinese newborn buried near a tree after her parents thought she was stillborn was dug up two hours later and found to be breathing.

Lu Xiaoyun called her husband, He Yong, to tell him she was having a miscarriage during what she believed was the fourth month of her pregnancy, the Daily Mail reported. When Ye arrived at the farm where his wife was working, he found her covered in blood and took her to the hospital. He told ambulance personnel that the baby was dead.

The Mail said after the couple left, Ye’s mother-in-law buried the baby in the backyard. But doctors at the hospital wanted to confirm the baby’s death, and Ye went home, shocked to find out she’d been buried. He dug her up and found that she was breathing and rushed her to the hospital.

Doctors said Lu was actually about six months along in her pregnancy.

The baby was kept in the hospital for three days until her parents ran out of money; when the international media picked up the story, donations came in and the baby is back in the hospital in an incubator.

Many people commented on the story, horrified that the hospital had discharged the baby before it was safe because the family ran out of money.

“And no one thought that it is completely s—y and inhumane to discharge a newborn who was only 6 months gestation and was born prematurely only because the family couldn't pay for it???? I mean really?” one woman wrote on an Inquisitr article. “Discharging a baby like that is pretty much signing their death certificate, which is even worse than what the parents did thinking that the baby was dead. The HOSPITAL knew it was alive and it is a hospital for God's sake! Yet they discharged the baby! Now THAT is insane!”
