ARGENTINA (ANS — May 11, 2017) — A female police officer in Argentina delivered a baby while she was in a coma, then woke up and held her three-month-old for the first time.
Many are calling it a miracle of God.
Amelia Bannan was nearly six months pregnant when she suffered a serious brain injury in an auto accident November 1st.
She had a premonition about traveling that day. “Let’s not travel, if we get into that car it will just roll over,” she told a friend, according to El Pais.
When the car was hit from behind, Bannan suffered a skull fracture, but the baby survived. The other occupants of the vehicle were unharmed, according to El Pais.
Since the accident, the baby developed normally in the womb while Amelia lapsed into a coma caused by a blood clot in her brain.
In late December, Amelia opened her eyes, moved her hands and although she was not able to speak, began contractions.
Since she did not dilate, she underwent an emergency C-section on Christmas Eve. “He was born on Christmas Eve, it was a miracle,” her brother, Caesar, told El Pais.
Little Santino weighed 4.16 pounds and stayed a month in a neonatal care unit. “He was born and grows well, he does not have a complication of anything. He is a total warrior,” Caesar said.
Every day the family brought the baby close to Amanda, but there was no response. Then a week before Easter, God answered their prayers in an amazing way.
