Newborn moves after being declared dead, now in stable condition

  1. Thank god those police officers were standing by to save the little one.

    • You mean ALERT the people who saved the little one. It’s good that everything turned out alright, but basically we’re praising people who saw a corpse move and called out down the hall to the people who knew what they were doing. That’s not usually the kind of thing we give high praise for after the age of say, six.
