Matteo Botha shouldnโ€™t be alive today... When he was just 18 months old, an ordinary evening at home ended in an emergency visit to hospital. Matteo needed surgery to have a large portion of his bowel removed. But this was just the beginning of his ordeal. Matteoโ€™s heart stopped on the operating table, an unusual outcome that baffled his medical team. They resuscitated him โ€“ but then his heart stopped again... and again. Within 24 hours of being rushed to the emergency department, the little boyโ€™s heart had stopped 12 times. His doctors warned that he was severely brain damaged, but his parents refused to give up. Now, more than a year later, Matteo is a thriving baby boy making a remarkable neurological recovery.
