Baby Boy In Good Health After He Was Born Using Dead Man's Sperm

For the first time in Australia, a healthy baby boy was born using sperm that was extracted from a dead man, doctors said.

Against all odds, the baby was born using sperm taken from his father who died two days earlier.

The woman of South Australia, asked the Supreme Court to be allowed to collect the sperm of her husband after he die in a motorcycle accident.

As the court process took two days, no sperm was collected for 48 hours, prompting doctors question whether the sperm was still viable.

Doctors said that they did not think it was possible to use sperm that was collected so long after death, but it turned out not to be the case.
