The mother, Analia Bouter, says she fell to her knees in shock after finding her baby alive in a coffin.

Bouter named her newborn Luz Milagros, or “Miracle Light.” The tiny girl, born three months premature, was in critical but improving condition Wednesday in the same hospital where the staff pronounced her stillborn on April 3.

Rafael Sabatinelli, the deputy health minister in the northern province of Chaco, announced in a news conference on Tuesday that five medical professionals involved have been suspended pending an official investigation.
