By Tom Chiat STAR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT Nabb, Ind. Taml Carroll's eyes filled with tears as she cradled her newborn son, Logan, In her arms and tried to tell him goodbye. Logan had been pronounced dead just minutes after his birth in Clark Memorial Hospital at nearby Jeffersonville, Just two weeks before Easter.

Less than an hour after being pronounced dead, Logan began to breathe on his own, and his heart began beating softly in his little chest. "It was just unbelievable. That's all I can say," his mother says. The medical staff in the delivery room looked on in disbelief. "My first thought was that this is impossible," gynecologist Dr. Diana Okon remembers. She had delivered Logan and could not find a heartbeat. "We tried everything to try and get Logan breathing, including pumping oxygen into his lungs. Nothing worked," she says. After declaring Logan dead, . Okon had left the delivery room sad and exhausted. "It was very painful losing that little boy." She said that when a nurse came out of the delivery room to inform her that Logan was breathing, she was skeptical. Her skepticism quickly turned to elation. "I've never seen anything quite like this. Logan's revival on his own is one for the textbooks," Okon said. Lois Harlow, a nurse, agrees. "I've never seen anything like this in my 37 years in medicine," Harlow says. "And I thought I'd seen it all." Logan's return to life also renewed Carroll's hopes for Logan's future. "Since I've had him back home, he's been just like a normal, happy baby," she says. "He coos and f i 1 Star Photo Tom Chiat MIRACLE BABY: Logan Carroll was pronounced dead at birth, , only to begin breathing on his own within an hour. Now his mother, Tami, calls her 4-month-old son a miracle baby. Okon says Logan seems to be a normal infant now but cautions" that "It's too soon to know if he giggles and is a good little boy." Logan's case is certainly rare, according to Dr. William A. Engle, a neonatologist at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. "I've never seen or heard of a case quite like that." Engle says. "The closest thing that even compares to this is when a person drowns in cold water," he says. "Then the body's functions slow down, and sometimes when the body is pulled from the water it revives." Okon also mentioned that "diving reflex." But both she and Engle agree that what happened in this case is different and unusual so unusual that Engle couldn't even speculate on how often it occurs. has any mental or physical Impairments due to his length of! time without breathing." Logan, however, continues to. appear healthy, and he Is home' with his mother and father and 4: year-old sister in the family's rent-, ed farmhouse in this Clark County-village. "Now that we've got Logan, I think I'll quit while I'm ahead," , she says with a chuckle. "I always wanted two children, and now this is enough." "Logan is a miracle baby, that's all I can say. He's Just a miracle baby." Suspect is sought in robbery at floral shop Star Staff Report Robbery detectives are searching for the man who robbed an employee of a Northwestside flo rist May 16. Detective Bob Flack of the Indianapolis Police Department said the robbery occurred about 9 a.m. as a female employee of George Thomas Florist and Gift Centers, 3805 Lafayette Road, arrived for work. stMs Flack said the woman was getting out of her car in the parking lot when a man stuck a gun to her back and screamed at her to get to the front door of the business. The man became agitated and threatened to hurt the employee If she didn't move quickly. After she opened the door, the man grabbed her purse from her shoulder, injuring her hand, and demanded money from the business as well. He then made threats to the employee while he ransacked the business before leaving. The suspect has a slender build, is about 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 160-175 pounds. He used a dark gray sweatshirt and white goggles to cover his face and wore blue Jeans and white tennis' shoes.
