A couple who were told that one of their new born twins was dead decided to give him one last hug without knowing that it was an antidote to bring him back to life.
Kate and David Ogg from Australia felt the world crashing on them when they heard the news, they hugged him so closely that the warmth of their bodies jolted the dead baby back to life.
Some members of staff at the hospital quickly rushed to the newborn and helped him back to life.
Now it’s been five years and the bubbling later the lively youngster has been told about his rocky start in life.
The couple, from Queensland in Australia, had been trying to get pregnant for some time and were overjoyed when they found out Kate was expecting twins.
But, although the pregnancy started out well, after six months Kate was rushed to the delivery room.
The twins were both born in the amniotic sac and while Emily started wailing when it was torn over Jamie didn’t make a sound.
About 20 medical personnel crowded around Jamie which made their mum become a bit suspicious.
The paramedics soon abandoned Jamie after 20 minutes because the baby had stopped breathing and his heartbeat was nearly gone.
The doctor sat on the end of Kate’s hospital bed and asked if they had a name picked out.
Heartbroken mum said she saw her baby gasp but the doctor told her it was useless so she took the boy in her arms and asked everyone to leave.
The baby’s body was cold so she tried to keep him as warm as possible, so Kate told her husband to take his shirt off and climb into the bed.
Notwithstanding that it was probably a pointless venture, she had to do everything she could to try and save her tiny son.
The desperate couple enveloped their tiny baby with their body warmth as they cradled him in the hospital bed.
The determined mother said, “We were trying to entice him to stay. We explained his name and that he had a twin that he had to look out for and how hard we tried to have him.
“He suddenly gasped… then he opened his eyes. He was breathing and grabbing Dave’s finger.
“If we had let the doctor walk out of the room with him, Jamie would have been dead.”
When Emily found out her twin brother had almost died she burst into tears and kept hugging Jamie.
Kate said her children love to talk about when they were babies and their younger brother Charlie tells everyone about Jamie’s incredible birth.
Amazingly Jamie has not encountered a single medical problem in his five years despite serious concerns the lack of oxygen when he was born could have led to cerebral palsy, according to Daily Mail.
The couple have set up an online community called Jamie’s Gift which fundraises for the Miracle Babies foundation which supports sick and premature babies.
