A newborn baby girl has been "brought back to life" thanks to a consultant's decision to have one more go at reviving her.
A father who lost six members of his family in a house fire in Harlow has made a fresh appeal on the Crimewatch programme.
A man has been found guilty of murdering his heavily pregnant former girlfriend and deliberately killing her unborn baby.
The father of the baby girl brought back to life thanks to a consultant's decision to have one more go at reviving her says they didn't realise how lucky they were.
Beatrix Richards, from Bishop's Stortford in Hertfordshire, was not 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.
Beatrix's father Lloyd Richards said: "We didn't realise how lucky we were - the odds were stacked against her from the off. Miraculously she's pulled through."
A baby born in Harlow in Essex has survived despite not breathing for the first 23 minutes of her life.
Beatrix Richards had to be resuscitated, but just at the moment when guidelines recommend resuscitation ends, the consultant at the Princess Alexandra hospital, decided to give it one more go.
She started to breathe and now 8 weeks old is back home in Bishop's Stortford.
She still has a tiny bleed on her brain, caused by the lack of oxygen when she was born, the long-term implications of which are unknown, but the outlook is very good.
The family are now fundraising for both the Princess Alexandra hospital in Essex and St Thomas's Hospital in London where she was transferred to at just a few hours old.

Detectives investigating a fire which killed six members of the same family in Harlow have made two arrests. Doctor Abdul Shakoor was the only survivor of the blaze at the family's home in Barn Mead, Harlow, last October.
Sabah Usmani, and their children, Muneeb, nine, Rayyan, six, Hira, 12, Sohaib, 11, and Maheen, three, all died.
A 28-year-old man from Harlow has been arrested on suspicion of arson in connection with an incident at the Harlow Islamic Centre on Monday, August 26, Essex Police said.
The man is currently in custody and will be questioned by detectives in due course.
Police have released CCTV footage of the men they believe to be responsible for an arson attack on a mosque in Harlow on Monday.
In the footage, three men are seen approaching the Harlow Islamic Centre building.
One of the men is seen holding a drill while another can be seen with what police believe to be a canister of insulation foam.
Leaders of the Islamic Centre called the police after the attack when they found insulation foam sprayed under all of the shutters which cover the doors and windows.
Police are asking anyone who is able to identify the men to contact Harlow CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
An Islamic centre has been targeted by arsonists, in what police believe was an anti-Muslim attack. Leaders at the Har-low Islamic Centre say they're "very saddened" by the incident.
Robyn Dwyer reports.
Members of an Islamic centre which suffered a suspected overnight arson attempt have said they are "very saddened" by what appears to be an anti-Muslim attack.
Police believe the incident at Harlow Islamic Centre in Paringdon Road, Harlow, Essex, took place between 10.30pm and 4am.
There had been a "concerted effort" to start the blaze by sealing entrances with foam so the fire would take hold, a member of the mosque said. Zia Rehman, the Islamic Centre's vice-chairman, said he suspects it may have been due to anti-Muslim prejudice.
Britain has seen a spike of hate crimes against Muslims in recent months following the death of Fusilier Lee Rigby outside Woolwich Barracks in south east London in May.
A 19 year man from Harlow was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of murder, attempted murder, arson and burglary by Essex Police investigating the fatal fire in Harlow last October that took the lives of six members of the Shakoor family.
He has been questioned about his involvement in the burglary and fatal fire at Barn Mead, Harlow on October 15, 2012 and has been bailed until June 27, while further enquiries are undertaken.
