This is the miraculous story of a newborn baby girl who was wrongly thought to have died at birth but was dug out of a shallow grave after being buried alive for eight hours in Brazil.

The infant child was born around midday to a 15-year-old Brazilian indigenous Indian girl. The young mother said she was alone in the bathroom when her contractions started.

According to her, the little girl arrived quickly and fell onto the bathroom floor hitting her head and suffering two cranial fractures.

After the baby failed to cry after being born, the 57-year-old great grandmother allegedly told police she believed the baby was dead. She claimed she followed indigenous Indian tribal customs and wrapped the girl in a cloth and buried her in the backyard after her great-granddaughter ‘showed no signs of life’

According to police, the family admitted failing to report the baby’s death but ‘believed they were following traditional customs’ so did not hesitate to point out where the unmarked grave was.
