The events of this miraculous story unfolded in 2023 in Minnesota, in the neonatal unit of Mercy Hospital.
Doctors decided that Stephanie Silva should have a cesarean section because they discovered that the fetus’s blood supply had been disrupted.
After the cesarean section, the little boy who came into the world immediately stopped breathing and had no pulse. So the medical team began a great battle to save the newborn’s life.
Interviewed on CBS cameras, the parents of the baby, Stephanie Silva and Mason Hubert, recall the birth of their child.
The memories of that day shake the father. “I was afraid I would lose both of them, or one of them,” Hubert recalls.
The doctors did everything possible to resuscitate the tiny baby. There was a moment when Dr. H. Kamrath, who performed the cesarean section, and the other doctors thought it was over because the little one had not breathed for sixteen minutes.
“We thought about stopping trying to resuscitate him because he showed no signs of life for sixteen minutes,” said Dr. Kamrath.
The parents also lost hope that their baby could survive.
But suddenly, a miracle happened, and the infant’s pulse started beating. Little Owen began to breathe.
After the wonderful rescue of the child, some doctors and nurses said that such resuscitation could leave consequences because staying sixteen minutes without oxygen could cause brain damage.
However, to everyone’s amazement, little Owen was able to face all traumatic obstacles and was even sent home on the twelfth day after his birth.
Owen’s birth was truly a special case, and his resuscitation was a real miracle for his parents and the medical staff because breathing after sixteen minutes of pause is an incredible thing.
