BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA (AP) -- An Argentine newborn who survived nearly 12 hours in a coffin in a morgue after hospital workers gave her up for dead is showing a series of complications common among infants born three months premature.

The baby's mother, Analia Bouter, says she got a supportive call from President Cristina Fernandez Wednesday asking to see the baby once she's out of intensive care.

That may take some time.

Neonatology chief Diana Vesco at the Perrando hospital in Resistencia announced Thursday that tiny Luz Milagros, or "Miracle Light," was in critical condition, suffering from sepsis and other complications related to premature birth.

Vesco said the baby is on a ventilator and antibiotics, and has suffered convulsions along with signs of neurological damage.
