Drowned toddler comes back to life in mother's arms

(FOX 32 News) - It’s a miracle in Missouri.

A 3-year-old girl came back to life in her mother’s arms after drowning in a pool.

Alise Nipper’s heart had stopped for a full 12 minutes. Her mother found her lifeless body under a pool float moments after losing track of her at a party.

After 12 minutes of CPR, her heart started beating again. Six days later, the young girl was awake and singing with her parents.

And in just 2 weeks, Alise was fully recovered.

Doctors said they were "astounded" by the girl's survival and recovery given the level of trauma her body endured, crediting "prayer, luck and Divine intervention."
