Miracle Baby that Died Along With Mom at Christmas is Now 7 Years Old


By Christina Marie Bennett
Live Action News


It’s been seven years since Mike Hermanstorfer spent Christmas Eve in the hospital. Mike and his wife Tracy were at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs so Tracy could deliver their baby boy, Coltyn. The mom of two expected a routine delivery, just like she had with her other children. 

As her monitors were being changed, Tracy shockingly went into cardiac arrest and stopped breathing. Stephanie Martin, the director of fetal medicine at Memorial Hospital remembers that grave moment. 
She told KKTV, “She was dead. She had no heartbeat, no breathing. She was as gray as her sweat suit, no signs of life.”
Doctors tried to resuscitate Tracy but to no avail. Then, in an effort to save the life of her preborn baby, they did an emergency Cesarean section. 
Mike told KKTV, “I was waiting to hear a baby cry. I was waiting for it and I never did hear it.” Mike was shocked when medical staff told him that Coltyn showed no sign of a heartbeat.
Mike was instantly faced with the reality of losing his wife and son at the same time. His wife had been without a heartbeat for four whole minutes. He clutched his son in disbelief as the nurses continued to offer help. During that time, a nurse told Mike that Tracy would be taken out to him so he could say goodbye. When he saw his wife, she was under a sheet.
