Here’s the long version of the story.
Here’s the short one.
Husband rushes wife to hospital on Christmas Eve. She’s due to deliver a child. In the middle of labor, 33-year-old Mom has a heart attack and is clinically dead. They do an emergency c-section, and the baby comes out non-responsive. Dad is handed a baby that appears lifeless.
The doctors continued to work on the baby, and he literally comes to life in Dad’s hands. Mom is rushed into surgery. Despite having no heartbeat for at least four minutes, Mom comes through surgery and wakes up.
Doctors can’t find any explanation for what caused the heart attack.
And, the full recovery of both Mom and Baby seems to be, well, a Christmas miracle.
