A baby was found to be alive two days after he was declared dead by a doctor in eastern China.
The Associated Press reports that the newborn boy was taken to a funeral home on Wednesday when two workers noticed that the baby was still alive. Authorities revoked the doctor’s license after hearing of the mistake.
The baby had several deformities and the doctor declared him dead on Monday. The doctor — who was only been identified by his surname Cha — made the call at a Children’s Hospital after the baby’s health declined. Authorities said that the doctor was negligent and the hospital has poor newborn practices.
The boy is still alive but he is in critical condition.
