The grieving mother of a baby who ‘died’ at seven months realized the baby was still alive at her funeral.

Keilin Johanna Ortiz Montoya was declared dead by doctors at a hospital in Villanueva, Honduras, on August 6.

She had been admitted three days earlier with convulsions, diarrhea, severe hydration and blistered skin caused by a bacterial infection.

Despite intensive treatment at the hospital’s pediatric unit, the baby ‘died’ and and a death certificate was reportedly issued.

Her tiny body was released to devastated mum Ivis Montoya, who took her baby home in her arms for a candlelight vigil.

After the gathering, Keilin was taken to a church in nearby Dos Caminos for a funeral.

Ivis said her daughter’s body was placed on a chair in the church because “we had no money for a coffin”.

It was at this point the mother noticed her daughter was still breathing.

Reluctant to return to the hospital that had declared her baby dead, she rushed to a local clinic.

Here, medical staff administered the baby with some medicine and a woman’s support group persuaded her to take the baby back to the paediatric unit.
