PACHUCA, Mexico — Mexican prosecutors have filed homicide charges against one doctor and lesser charges against four others in the case of a newborn baby who revived in her coffin after she was mistakenly declared dead.

Dr. Jenny Gijon, who declared the premature infant girl dead in early August, faces homicide, abuse and misconduct charges, said Jose Rodriguez, the attorney general of Hidalgo state said Sunday.

Rodriguez said the death caused "great indignation and anger."

During the wake, the baby's parents heard a strange noise coming out of her little coffin and when they opened it found the baby crying. The baby was hospitalized, but died three days later of asphyxia.

Why couldn't these doctors tell the difference between a live baby & a dead one? It's a shame that they found out so much later from the time of her being pronounced dead all the way until her wake. She probably would have survived if they figured it out sooner.

RIP baby angel.
