Healing without hope? Sure

Last Month an incident briefly captured headlines in Southern California. It still gives goose bumps to parents. Tragically, a 20-month-old child drowned in the family swimming pool. Heroic efforts failed to revive her.

Then the story takes a stunning U-turn from heartwrenching toward heartwarming. About 40 minutes after she is pronounced dead, a police investigator at the hospital photographs her. He notices her chest moving. She's breathing! Care for her resumes in an instant. Recent assessments are guarded but optimistic. A spokesperson is quoted as saying, "Tests showed [the child] suffered no gross abnormalities to her brain" (Los Angeles Times, November 12, 2003, page B4).
