The baby was born 2 months before the due date, from a 14-year old mom and had been pronounced dead at birth.

The undertaker got the scare of a lifetime when preparing the baby for burial, it broke down crying.

Police officers said doctors told them the infant was pronounced dead moments after her 14-year old mother gave birth two months before the due date.

The newborn was hastily taken back to the hospital and placed in the ICU, but died soon after “of multiple organ failure caused by a lack of oxygen in the blood,” according to Joao Paulo Vicente, of the Hospital das Clinicas in the city of Uberaba.
