Baby brought "back to life" after 23 minutes not breathing

A baby girl has been brought back to life thanks to a consultant's decision to make one final attempt to revive her.

Beatrix Richards, from Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire, wasn't breathing when she was born, and hospital guidelines state resuscitation should stop after 20 minutes.

But the hospital doctor treating Beatrix was reminded of his own daughter and decided he just couldn't give up. Three minutes later she started breathing and she's now recovering at home with her parents and sister.
