·2-min read

A heartbroken dad who was taking his supposedly dead baby to a cemetery to be buried after hospital doctors told him and his wife that it was stillborn was shocked to hear it crying in the car on the way there.

Medics at the Yuregir State Hospital in the city of Adana, in south-central Turkey, had even issued a death certificate after coming to the conclusion that the baby boy, who was born in the fifth month of pregnancy, was dead.

Mum Melek Sert, 32, had been experiencing pain and went to hospital on December 27. 

She was treated before being discharged on December 30.

But she fell ill again on New Year's Eve and was taken to the Seyhan State Hospital, where her condition deteriorated.

Doctors told her that she was "having a miscarriage", explaining that her baby was "dead".

The newborn was delivered naturally and dad Hasan Sert then took his supposedly dead child to the cemetery for it to be buried, but on the way there it suddenly started crying.

The baby boy is now fighting for its life in intensive care. The stunned dad has said that anyone wanting to help and who has a O Rh-negative blood type, can donate to his baby.

"My baby is fighting for his life. Since we haven't given him a name yet, donors can give blood for the Sert baby," he said.

An investigation has been launched by the authorities against the hospital in a bid to determine if any negligence took place.
