Colorado Mother and Newborn Son Revived After Dying in Labor
On Christmas Eve a mother from Colorado officially died while giving birth to a stillborn baby. Mere minutes later, both came back to life.
New mother Tracy Hermanstorfer stopped breathing while giving birth on Christmas Eve, and doctors were unable to revive her.
It quickly became clear that a Cesarean section was necessary in order to extract the child from Tracy’s lifeless body. Mike, Tracy’s husband, was sure he had lost his son and his wife, but then something amazing happened. The boy came to!
“His life began in my hands,” Hermanstorfer said after the child’s heart began to beat. “That’s a feeling like no other.”
Shortly after, Tracy woke up, though she has no memory of the events.
“We did a thorough evaluation and can’t find anything that explains why this happened,” Dr. Martin told the Associated Press.
The couple is now at home resting with their son, Coltyn. (The New York Daily News)
