Amazing tale of twin baby boy who came back to life
 
An Australian baby boy who was born premature, pronounced dead, then revived seemingly by his mother's touch, is turning two this month, NBC's "TODAY" reports

Doctors told Kate and David Ogg their son was dead after being born prematurely at 27 weeks on March 25, 2010.

As Kate bid her son goodbye, she hugged and soothed him, telling him his twin sister Emily was fine and that she loved him, the Daily Mail reported.

Five minutes later, the couple noticed their son gasping for air, notes The Stir. Two hours later, he even drank a drop of breast milk from his mother's finger.

The couple, who lived in Sydney, Australia, were ecstatic about the twin's successful recovery.

"I'd carried him inside me for only six months -- not long enough -- but I wanted to meet him, and to hold him, and for him to know us," Kate Ogg told Ann Curry on "TODAY" in 2010. "We feel so fortunate," David Ogg added. "We're the luckiest people in the world."

This month, Jamie Ogg will celebrate his second birthday with his twin sister.

The family has since relocated to a town in New Zealand and the twins are both in good health. They've also added a third child to the family.

The Oggs' miracle is backed by scientific studies that point to the success of skin-to-skin care for premature babies. However, most hospitals don't allow this and have policies to keep premature babies in incubators and away from germs.
